Biting the Hand That Feeds Them: Organizing Women on Welfare at the Grass Roots Level

By Jacqueline Pope | Go to book overview

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

JACQUELINE POPE is an assistant professor of political science at Stockton State College in Pomona, New Jersey, with a Ph.D. from Columbia University. She specializes in public administration and policy and urban studies. Teaching is a career change for her, having spent 20 years in public-policy change advocacy for the poor and in research with nonprofit organizations, including the New York City government.

This first book documents activities of the Brooklyn Welfare Action Council, whose members were society's poorest women. They labored virtually alone to promote equity for their children and themselves. "Many of us believe it heralded the true beginning of the women's movement in New York City," according to Dr. Pope.
