Keeping women and children last : America's war on the poor by Ruth Sidel( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruth Sidel revisits the condition of America's poor women, with particular focus on the federal government's attempts to dismantle the welfare system. She shows how America, in its search for a post-Cold War enemy, has turned inward to target single mothers on welfare and how politicians have scapegoated and stigmatized female-headed families both as a method of social control and to divert attention from the several problems that Americans face. Most important, she reveals the real victims of poverty - the millions of children who suffer from societal neglect, inferior education, inadequate health care, hunger, and homelessness. Citing statistics that are both terrifying and disturbing, Sidel delivers a chilling indictment of the current trends and political maneuvering that threaten to keep America's poor women and children last
Battling bias : the struggle for identity and community on college campuses by Ruth Sidel( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Politicians, philosophers, and academics have spent countless hours debating the issues of greatest concern on college campuses today: multiculturalism, political correctness, race relations, sexual politics, and gender. But what has been noticeably missing from their discussions are the voices of the students themselves. Battling Bias is one of the first books to offer an analysis of their actions and reactions on their own college campuses. In this work a wide variety of students from both public and private schools across the country share their pain and anger, their concerns and experiences and the impact on their lives of the surge of conflicts so omnipresent on campuses today. Sidel explores these issues against a backdrop of our current economic problems and polarities, our increasingly diverse society and changing patterns of immigration. She discusses the key problems for American higher education (including who should have access to it), and offers solutions. This unique contribution to the continuing debate on the role of education in a democratic society should be required reading for anyone interested in the future of our schools and of our nation

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Keeping Women and Children Last, Ruth Sidel shows how America, in its search for a post-Cold War enemy, has turned inward to target single mothers on welfare, and how politicians have scapegoated and stigmatized female-headed families both as a method of social control and to divert attention from the severe problems that Americans face. She reveals the real victims of poverty--the millions of children who suffer from societal neglect, inferior education, inadequate health care, hunger, and homelessness. In this new edition, focusing on the passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, Sidel reevaluates our social policy, assessing the impact of the "end of welfare as we know it" on America's poor, especially its women and children
