Abstract

Among the urban poor in the Global South, an increasingly large percentage of women are household heads because weakened kin structures have allowed men to cease supporting their families. Women produce incomeat home in order to combine work and childcare despite government regulations and community planners that discourage such use. Changes in policies regarding tenancy rights for women, housing design, and home production would recognize a woman's dual use of her home. New organizations for home-based workers offer some measure of protection. Solutions to family survival require a research focus on survival issues relating to men as well as to women.
