AlterPushed to the Altar:
The Right Wing Roots of Marriage Promotion

The Bush Administration has abandoned proven poverty reduction strategies and instead is encouraging women — especially welfare recipients — to marry their way out of poverty. PRA founder Dr. Jean Hardisty traces the influence of right-wing fatherhood groups on the Administration’s “marriage promotion” programs, and the channeling of millions of federal dollars back to these groups, violating the separation of church and state. Jointly published by PRA and the Women of Color Resource Center.
