More recently, Jones and Bell claim that ‘citizenship is meaningless without economic independence’ (2000: 60). Children in industrialized societies lack such independence, except for whatever part-time wages they may earn. As noted earlier, any social security rights for children are by proxy. A key feminist policy argument has been that women’s right to social security should be individualized and not mediated through their partner. This is a more difficult argument to apply to children who, so long as they are required to attend school and do not have the potential to earn a wage to support themselves, are necessarily dependent economically upon parents or other adults who are responsible for their protection (see also Jones in this volume).

Qxd 30/8/07 7:40 PM 14 Page 14 Ruth Lister feminists have exposed the male template underpinning traditional meanings of citizenship (see Lister, 2003a), so can we argue that it is an adult template, which measures children against an adult norm and which ignores the particularities of children’s relationship to citizenship. The difference is that, in modern times, citizenship’s universalism is supposed to cover women, in theory at least, whereas mainstream accounts of citizenship do not typically make any claims to include children.
