Tattered Love Notes & Scribbled Memoirs

As I look into the mirror, I see my face,

The problem for women continues to grow as societies adapt to the acceptance of poverty and to single head of households ran by women. Interrelated facets such as low income, social bias, motherhood and living arrangements continue to feed the cycle of poverty. 

” It is this ideology regarding gender inequality that plagues a culture and influences the society as a whole. As a society adapts to change, cultures often veer towards technology, social-organization and ideology of the more dominant societal structure. Human culture systems do not remain stable forever and external influences inevitably the US economy is stratified.
