1. What was the author's
purpose in Chapter Six?
JW’s Answer
• To expose the high frequency of sexual abuse
histories among working poor women
• To defy the common stereotype (p. 128) and
convince the reader that sexual abuse causes
emotional problems that impede labor force
participation and job performance
• Corollaries
– We need to invest in programs that address sexual abuse
– Work programs that neglect the consequences of sexual
abuse and rely upon work rules and time as motivators
solely will fail to produce stable employees
What stands out the most among the
things you learned in this chapter?
JW’s Answer
• I am disappointed that Shipler did not
authoritatively answer the questions that he
posed on p. 144:
– Are poor children more vulnerable than rich?
– Do families lacking material means also lack the
means to protect their children from such indelible
– Is molestation more prevalent in disrupted
households with single mothers, transitory
boyfriends, alcohol, drugs, and absent adults
working long hours in late-night shifts?
• I want to know about the direct causality of
poverty on the incidence of sexual abuse.
What one question would you ask David
Shipler about Chapter Six if he visited us?
JW’s Answer
• PREVENTION: What programs, if any, have
successfully reduced the incidence of sexual
• HEALING: What programs, if any, have
successfully addressed the consequences of
sexual abuse among low-income women?
• In both cases, what is the key to the success
of these programs? Can they be replicated in
other locations?
JW’s Answer
Two new questions
• In what other courses have you studied
the issues in Chapter Six?
• Can you recommend readings and/or
speakers for Chapter Six? If so, please
do so.
