Description - Sexual Orientation Discrimination by Lee Badgett

Having recently authored one of the most significant books, Money, Myths and Change, in this exciting area of economics, Lee Badgett has now teamed up with Jeff Frank and a collection of international contributors to provide an analysis of sexual orientation discrimination on an international scale. Discrimination based on sexual orientation continues to fuel collective action, policy debates and academic scrutiny in many countries. For some time, sociologists and psychologists have studied sexual orientation discrimination in institutions and explored prejudices against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in mainstream areas. Now economists have also begun to examine the experiences of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals in less traditional research sectors including the labour, housing, credit, and retail markets. This book includes sections on: * wages and jobs * discrimination across institutional contexts * discrimination in cultural institutions including religion, education and sport * addressing discrimination through public policies. Innovative and up-to-date this book is an essential read for postgraduate students studying in the areas of political economy, gender studies and feminist economics.
