Description - Out of the Margin by Susan Feiner
In recent years there has been a tremendous increase in work focusing on the relation between gender and economics. Feminists have found much of concern in the way the discipline has: written women out of its history, built its theories around masculinist values, failed to take proper account of women and their work when measuring the economy, and ignored most of the policy issues that press most heavily upon them. Now they are rejecting this marginalized position. 2IOut of the Margin: Feminist Economics Today is the first book to consider feminist concerns across the whole domain of economics.
Including contributions from leading feminist economists from the US, Europe and the South the book offers a richness of new insights in addressing: * the absence of women, both as subject and object, in the history of economic thought * the philosophical roots of rational economic man * power relations and conflicts within the family * the limitiations of relying on secondary data and the need for new data and research * the policy implications of neo-classical models and the need for new data and research With its range and depth of coverage this is not only an excellent introduction to the field but also indispensible for anyone looking for in depth analysis of gender and economics.
