The extent of women's economic dependency is partly a function of their position in the life-cycle. It will also vary according to factors such as 'race' class and disability.

Moreover, the vast majority of nineteenth-century British and American women remained poor, and, because philanthropic effort was patchy, such benefits as they acquired were unevenly distributed. Furthermore, although Swedish women, like women in other welfare states, were not a major force in post-war social policy-making, they have acquired much more political power in recent decades (Pedersen, 1989).
