Poverty and inequality are increasing in developing countries such as Egypt--where women particularly suffer. Those in charge of female-headed households comprise a very large category of socially-deprived women--almost 30% of all Egyptian families. This book looks at how these women cope with poverty, and how they extract benefits such as welfare payments and pensions from state agencies and religious welfare organizations. Her findings conclude that women in these positions encounter a serious gender bias.
