Facts, figures, and essays on women and poverty by Barbara Ehrenreich, Kirsten Gillibrand, LeBron James, and other high-profile contributors.

Fifty years after President Lyndon B. Johnson called for a War on Poverty and enlisted Sargent Shriver to oversee it, the most important social issue of our day is once again the dire economic straits of millions of Americans. One in three live in poverty or teeter on the brinkand seventy million are women and the children who depend on them.

The fragile economic status of millions of American women is the shameful secret of the modern erayet these women are also our greatest hope for change, and our nation's greatest undervalued asset. The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Pushes Back from the Brink asksand answersbig questions. Why are millions of women financially vulnerable when others have made such great progress? Why are millions of women struggling to make ends meet even though they are hard at work? What is it about our nationgovernment, business, family, and even women themselvesthat drives women to the financial brink? And what is at stake?

To forge a path forward, this book brings together a power-packed roster of big thinkers and talented contributors, in a volume that combines academic research, personal reflections, authentic photojournalism, groundbreaking poll results, and insights from frontline workers; political, religious, and business leaders; and major celebritiesall focused on a single issue of national importance: women and the economy.
