(p.151) Chapter 6 Caregiving as a Race-Gendered Issue
Sisters in the Statehouse

Nadia E. Brown

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 examines whether and how race- and gender-consciousness shapes Black women’s legislative decision making. It investigates Black women’s views on the Financial Exploitation of the Elderly bill and compares them with a sample of those of Black men and White women and men. As a result, the chapter evaluates the effects of race and gender on representation in the case of legislation that is specifically classified as a women’s-interest bill.

Keywords:   women’s-interest bill, financial exploitation of the elderly, legislative decision making
