Overview

This volume brings together the work of outstanding feminist scholars who reflect on the achievements of feminist political economy and the challenges it faces in the 21st century.

The volume develops further some key areas of research in feminist political economy - understanding economies as gendered structures and economic crises as crises in social reproduction, as well as in finance and production; assessing economic policies through the lens of women's rights; analysing global transformations in women's work; making visible the unpaid economy in which care is provided for family and communities,
and critiquing the ways in which policy makers are addressing ( or failing to address) this unpaid economy.
