Women, Microenterprise, and the Politics of Self-Help, Hardback Book

Women, Microenterprise, and the Politics of Self-Help Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Women and Business series

Description

Theories on the eradication of poverty abound. Self-help, self-reliance and self-sufficiency are touted as solutions, and are indeed critical to an economically stable life.

Yet, for economically disadvantaged women (America's poorest citizens), self-help is not as simple as grabbing sturdy boot straps or climbing elusive ladders.

Creative ideas for self-sufficiency do not flower and flourish in environments that are void of resources.

This book, first published in 1995, examines the questions raised around the concept of self-help by introducing microenterprise and exploring its relevance to poor women.
