Federation leaders, critical of women who worked outside the home, complained that working women not only became too independent of their husbands, but that they deprived children of their right to full-time mothers. The Church Federation supported what it called a model of ‘‘Christian Family Living’’ that openly and explicitly celebrated traditional gender roles and relations.
What is most revealing about the survey is that Church Federation members so ably used the language of their secular counterparts, especially those in the field of psychology. For exam- A City of Families ple, the survey focused on issues such as the ‘‘parent-child relationship’’ and ‘‘marital relations’’ by asking the parents how well their children obeyed them and whether or not they, the husbands and wives, had serious arguments or sexual difficulties.

Remarkably, public funding of Catholic Charities received little public attention. This protected Catholics from adversaries who might Catholic Charities and the Making of the Welfare State have challenged such a relationship.
