Research on ‘Poverty through a Gender Lens’

Poverty through a Gender Lens: Evidence and Policy Review on Gender and Poverty by Fran Bennett and Mary Daly for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation was published in May 2014.

This review forms part of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s programme to develop a set of evidence-based anti-poverty strategies for the UK. The remit was to identify and analyse evidence on the links between gender and poverty, and possible reasons for them; and to examine the impact on these links of specific policies and overall policy approaches.
