Abstract:

Gwendolyn Mink discusses the issue of freedom at the heart of current legislative efforts to promote marriage among poor, unmarried mothers or those who are seen as being at risk of becoming poor, unmarried mothers. Recognizing unmarried motherhood as a possible outcome of marital and reproductive freedom, she argues that neither punitive measures nor coercion will cure the inequality that creates poverty; pretending otherwise will only exacerbate the race and class antagonisms that exist among women in the U.S.
