Using Postmodern Feminist Theory to Deconstruct "Phallacies" of Poverty

Using Postmodern Feminist Theory to Deconstruct "Phallacies" of Poverty

Abstract

This article demonstrates how postmodern feminist deconstruction can be used to uncover phallocentric biases in current theories of the feminization of poverty. It discusses deconstruction, critiques themes from the literature on policy, deconstructs statements from leading theorists, and questions the proposed solution to the feminization of poverty: marriage for women and the creation and preservation of good-paying jobs for men.
