This paper aims to analyse divorced women's housing problems by using 2000 Population and Housing Census and 2001 Social Statistics Survey. Results show that there are considerable differences in housing situations of married and divorced women. Divorced women are more likely to be living in large cities; to be living in the rented sector; to be living in houses rather than apartments; to lack modern housing facilities; to move frequently; and to be dissatisfied with their houses and residential environment.
Considering that divorce rates are increasing rapidly and more divorced women tend to live together with their children than before thanks to the revised Family Law, it is required to pay a special attention to single mother's housing problems. Based on feminist approaches to the housing studies, this paper suggests several housing welfare services. While the 'add on' approach implies to build more public housing and provide more housing loans, environmental determinism stresses the importance of day care center. By contrast, the deconstruction approach claims to reveal power inequality and unfairness in the housing system.
