1)This author wanted to determine if people’s feelings towards the poor differed when dealing with poor women or poor men. It was to figure out if Americans thought different about how men got into poverty and why they are in poverty as opposed to how and why women are in it. They do a study, questioning people about their feelings towards poverty. The author examined how people felt about the poor, stereotypes about the poor, and attributions for poverty in both women and men. I think I will use the results of this experiment the most, but a little of the background too. This article will tell me how people feel about the poor, if they were considered worthless or important, and if people think that it’s their own problem and mistakes to be in poverty. I will especially consider the results because it talks about more positive feelings towards women, but negative towards the men about them being lazy.
