‘Exploring BME Maternal Poverty. The financial lives of ethnic minority mothers in Tyne and Wear’ is an Oxfam Research Report published in January 2011.
The report shines a light into a neglected area: the financial lives of BME mothers. Census data shows that BME women are over-represented in the poorest households in the UK, while previous studies have found that women often bear the greatest burden of material hardship in low-income households. Using a methodology to measure poverty within the household, this study opens up the financial arrangements of BME families and explores how life on a low income impacts on BME mothers.
