dc.descriptionAt the global level, women are among the poorest of the poor, with access to the fewest resources and opportunities. They are frequently economically dependent on male partners. In Ireland, 70% of women interviewed are financially dependent on social welfare, as their legal status does not allow them to work despite their desire to do so. For many, their legal status as asylum seekers or refugees is a major economic constraint and a constant source of worry. Financial dependency and limited resources prevent them from maintaining an adequate diet essential to their health, and limit their ability to provide nappies, clothes and food for their children. Global inequities and local economic dependencies must be challenged, and Cairde recommends allowing asylum seekers to take up employment after six months in the asylum process, developing a mechanism to assess equivalence of qualitications gained overseas, and faCilitating a gradual rather than sudden withdrawal of social welfare entitlements upon finding work, which will case women's financial transition.en
