About-

"Welfare Policy is for me an occasion for rejoicing. Grounded in the present public controversy over so-called welfare reform, these chapters . . . model a genre of feminist ethics, informed normatively by radical readings of Christian or related religious traditions. This book is distinctive, however, because its theological perspective is profoundly and unapologetically political, rooted in an advocacy stance for a policy that aims at women's well-being."
--Beverly W. Harrison, from the Foreword

Welfare Policy: Feminist Critiques looks behind the political-moral mask to explore the issues at stake for women and children in the welfare debate.
