Women are hit hardest by Poverty according to the newest census and that poverty rates have increased across the board.  This doesn’t suprise me the economy is bad and more and more people are joining those of us who live below the poverty line.

Women are hit because we do not make as much money as a man doing the same type of work and traditional female fields are kept low paying positions.

Single women must raise their children often alone with no help from the father or anyone else.  A single woman must often hold up more then her half of the sky.   Only when women make as much money as men and men take care of their responsibilities with babies they make will women be able to come out of poverty.
