The decade of the '80s saw a growing rift between the rich and the poor in the United States. Poverty increased among women with children--the so-called "female-headed family"--more rapidly than among any other population group. Couture's work argues that the tradition of self-sufficiency has contributed to the growth of women's poverty, and instead supports a policy of interdependence.
