Women Don't Count: The Challenge of Women's Poverty to Christian Ethics

Brubaker, Pamela K.


This work examines the dynamics through which women are marginalized and impoverished, and offers a constructive proposal for addressing women’s socioeconomic vulnerability. Part One surveys the economic status of women globally and discerns both common threads of subordination and significant differences among women. Part Two reviews the social-justice positions of the Roman Catholic Church and the World Council of Churches in light of this survey. Part Three identifies theoretical resources that adequately address women's socioeconomic vulnerability. Brubaker advances her own theoretical approach, which illuminates and engages women’s impoverishment. She concludes with a discussion of how placing women’s economic condition at the center of Christian economic ethics would affect social analysis, economic policy, and social vision.
