Scholars generally underanalyze the roles of religious and feminist organizations in the contemporary living wage movement. Yet coalitions of religious and feminist organizations contribute significantly to the movement through funding, research, and leadership development. Moreover, these alliances to counter the ““feminization of poverty”” also raise ethical issues about the ““feminization of organizing.”” In this article, the author analyzes these coalitions and offers a theo-ethical reflection on the gendered ““sacrificial”” demands of low-wage worker organizing.
