📙 Liberating Economics: Feminist Perspectives on Families, Work, and Globalization by Drucilla K. Barker, Susan Feiner — free pdf


Liberating Economics draws on central concepts from women's studies scholarship to construct a feminist understanding of the economic roles of families, caring labor, motherhood, paid and unpaid labor, poverty, the feminization of labor, and the consequences of globalization. Barker and Feiner consistently recognize the importance of social location -- gender, race, class, sexual identity, and nationality -- in economic processes shaping the home, paid employment, market relations, and the global economy. Throughout they connect women's economic status in the industrialized nations to the economic circumstances surrounding women in the global South.Rooted in the two disciplines, this book draws on the rich tradition of interdisciplinary work in feminist social science scholarship to construct a parallel between the notions that the "personal is political" and "the personal is economic."Drucilla K. Barker is Professor of Economics and Women's Studies, Hollins University.Susan F. Feiner is Associate Professor of Economics and Women's Studies, University of Southern Maine.
