Product Description


"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

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A nice review (bothe theoretical, as well as statistical) of the effects of austerity and neo-liberal fiscal policies in Europe. The authors are top experts in the field of labour economics and gender studies. Indispensable guide to anyone who is interested in studying contemporary social developments concerning gender-based divides, differentiations and inequalities in the labour market, and not only.
