Denise Martin and Paula Wilcox argue that, in the UK, welfare rather than penalisation and punishment have been the main sites and vehicles for neoliberalism's attempt to make the poor take responsibility for their own plight and that this emphasis was central to the public policies of the New Labour government. They also raise the question of the specific experiences of women as victims of neoliberalism and the need for a distinct gender perspective here.
