Thought-provoking,authoritative, accessible this report considers the place of women in the US workforce, especially those living on the brink of poverty - "one repair bill away from crisis".
Much of what it says is relevant to the UK (and, I would guess, many other countries). It examines how women make an increasing contribution to the workforce and economic prosperity of the country but struggle with low paid jobs and minimum or no employment rights such as sick leave or holiday pay. The inequalities between male and female pay and conditions, the fact that most single parent households are headed by women, and the caring roles for elderly relatives and children are placing an unfair burden on millions of women. A plethora of internationally respected contributors examine this and propose solutions to achieve a fairer society. Essential reading.

I'm not a US resident so perhaps this wasn't targeted at myself but I have been long interested in the wealth divides across the globe and rather than this being a "feminist" project, it is insightful into the daily routines of women from all walks of life. There is the odd argument which I didn't agree with however on the whole I think this deserves to be seen by a wider audience.

An excellent report on poverty and female empowerment. A must read for everyone, regardless of where you live, it's eye- opening for all.
