The Economic Status of Women under Capitalism shows how institutional economics can be used to analyze the economic oppression of women and to promote progressive social and economic change. The book is divided into three parts. Part one, Exploring Connections: Institutionalism and Feminism, examines the relationship between institutionalist economics and feminist theory. Part two, Extending our Analysis, offers a critique of feminist and institutionalist theory and suggests ways to extend these approaches to be more inclusive and progressive. The final part, Examining the Issues of Gender assesses the economic status of women in several different countries - the United States, the former Soviet Union and Japan - providing a `real-life' context for the theoretical issues raised in Parts One and Two. Working from a radical institutionalist perspective, the contributors to The Economic Status of Women under Capitalism share a concern over the economic status of women and a belief that the dominant approaches to economic analysis are limited in their ability to analyse the subordination of women and prescribe policy responses. This important book will be welcomed as a significant contribution in its own right as well as providing impetus for future debate.
