The allocation of resources is not gender-neutral. Apparently, in households lead by women (i.e. in which women have a higher say on how resources are allocated), the expenditure is different than in households lead by men (@criadoperez2020Invisible women: exposing data bias in a world designed for men). This means that when evaluating poverty, one must also consider who is the resource manager of the household (see: The zombie stat). This is poorly done, but it may be pointing to showing that women can, in fact, be poor even if the household is not in that category.
