Limited representation in government, lack of opportunity in education and careers, inadequate healthcare, and horrific violence are just a fraction of what Congolese women have to face everyday. Women are treated as second-class citizens and legally the government favors the men in cases of trial or divorce, in which the father is almost always granted custody of their children (A to Z). It is much harder for women to also get an education and a job to support their families, even if they are more qualified. It is also not uncommon for girls as young as twelve years old to be forced into marriage. Healthcare is a huge issue for women across the country, as maternal mortality and infant mortality rates are some of the highest in the world.

Foreign aid was sent directly to the government to improve its physical structure, reduce poverty and maintain political stability, but the government took that foreign aid for its own benefit and reduced people's ability to depend on their government.
The gap between men and women in poverty is far vaster in America than anywhere else. In 2007, 13.8 percent of females were poor compared to the 11.1 percent of men. Women living in high-income countries such as the United States give birth with the help of medical attention, but for low-income countries this is usually not the case. The Death Toll in poverty by race causes the population of many poor Americans to double 25 percent every year. There are a lot of drawbacks to those who have low-income such as housing stability and economic development.

Poverty consists of many disadvantages to children’s educational life. Professionals who work with children will integrate in order to allow children to have the best start in their early years. There are many reasons to why children are experiencing poverty, one of the reasons is families with low income.
