Social Reproduction: Feminist Political Economy Challenges Neo-Liberalism
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungUsing a feminist political economy approach, contributors document the impact of current socio-economic policies on states, markets, households, and communities. Relying on impressive empirical research, they argue that women bear the costs of and responsibility for care-giving and show that the theoretical framework provided by feminist analyses of social reproduction not only corrects the gender-blindness of most economic theories but suggests an alternative that places care-giving at its centre. In this illuminating study, they challenge feminist scholars to re-engage with materialism and political economy to engage with feminism.

Pressestimmen"This well-researched book makes visible the unaccounted costs of neo-liberal economic and social policies and shows how they fall particularly heavily on poor women in Canada, both citizens and migrants." Diane Elson, University of Essex "The focus on social reproduction within the overall framework of feminist political economy makes for a powerful and relevant analysis of the fate that has befallen Canadian society as a result of both federal and provincial shifts in social and health provisions." Marilyn Porter, Memorial University of Newfoundland
