The article is talking about a one parent home.
Either the woman is alone with children because they are divorced or they are single women with children.
Women alone with children can work, the thought that they can't work is BS. I personally know a woman who when she got a divorce went to work when her baby was a few months old, that was 21 years ago and she is still working for Exxon. Never once took one penny from welfare or medicaid.
Women who sit around all day watching soaps and waiting for the government to support her kids and her are lazy leeches.
Yes, women can work, but children of working women still need fathers and child support, from my experience.
