Abstract

The purpose of this paper is dual: on the one hand, to look into a synthesis of the complex meaning of poverty; on the other hand, to look into the concept of the feminization of poverty, through both its theoretical analysis and empirical evidence in Spain in recent literature. There are several different methodologies for approaching the study of poverty, thus divergent results will be expected. Moreover, the feminization of poverty is not an unequivocal concept, having diverse approaches and therefore, many different ways to empirically measure it. The analysis of recent and limited literature about the feminization of poverty in Spain shows the lack of consensus among researchers about its conceptualization and measure.
