ICYMI: Being a Poor, Single Mom Is Hard

In addition to getting gagillionaire Beyoncé to say that gender equality is a myth in print, Maria Shriver’s Shriver Report has produced a documentary about how that fact affects women who make $9.49 an hour. Paycheck to Paycheck follows Katrina Gilbert, a 30-year-old certified nurse assistant and single mother of three who is sometimes ineligible for food stamps, denied financial aid for college, and forced to sell the family dog. Slate called her the “most sympathetic poor woman in America.” It’s streaming free all this week.
