Gender Perspectives and Gender Impacts of the Global Economic Crisis, Hardback Book

Gender Perspectives and Gender Impacts of the Global Economic Crisis Hardback

Edited by Rania Antonopoulos, Nilufer Cagatay, Sara Hsu

Part of the Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy series


With the full effects of the Great Recession still unfolding, this collection of essays analyses the gendered economic impacts of the crisis.

The volume, from an international set of contributors, argues that gender-differentiated economic roles and responsibilities within households and markets can potentially influence the ways in which men and women are affected in times of economic crisis. Looking at the economy through a gender lens, the contributors investigate the antecedents and consequences of the ongoing crisis as well as the recovery policies adopted in selected countries.

There are case studies devoted to Latin America, transition economies, China, India, South Africa, Turkey, and the USA.

Topics examined include unemployment, the job-creation potential of fiscal expansion, the behavioral response of individuals whose households have experienced loss of income, social protection initiatives, food security and the environment, shedding of jobs in export-led sectors, and lessons learned thus far.

From these timely contributions, students, scholars, and policymakers are certain to better understand the theoretical and empirical linkages between gender equality and macroeconomic policy in times of crisis.
