"This work for academics, researchers, and policy makers gathers papers from two international symposia on 'Women, Gender Equality and Economic Crisis,' held in Athens in 2011 and Reykjavik in 2012. The papers look at how austerity measures negatively impact gender equality by removing funding for employment and social welfare programs. Part 1 introduces an analytical framework for examining women's vulnerability to recession and austerity measures. Part 2 presents nine country case studies, including the US, the UK, Ireland, Hungary, and Portugal. Part 3 recommends policy changes." - Book News
