Female Single-Headed Households, Poverty, and Education Attainment from the Feminization of Poverty and Intersectionality Perspectives

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The 2016 US Census Bureau, shows that African American students enroll in and graduate from college even though many come from impoverished and/or single female-headed households. Analyses reveal that these students face barriers to access and education because of several types of oppression. The current essay discusses single female-headed and impoverished households, and how they impact African American higher educational attainment. The topic is analyzed through the feminization of poverty and intersectionality perspectives, particularly. I contend that racist, sexist, and classist forces negatively impact African American student (from low-income, single female-headed homes) matriculation, regardless of an equal representation of African American Bachelor’s degree graduates (14.8%). I explain the feminization of poverty and intersectionality, as female single headed households and education matriculation are discussed from these viewpoints. While single-parented homes, and African American enrollment and graduation are the topic of this paper, family structure and poverty truly address how these factors relate to one another. Matriculation is referred to as high school completion, college enrollment, and college graduation for students in low-income and/or single female-headed households. Future research should explore the gender gap between African American men and women.
