Are there feminist, economic utopian visions amongst feminist economists? What are these visions? Is there a common vision for feminist economics or should there be? Can feminist economics be effective without a utopian vision?
Comprehensive and original, this book surveys the entire field of utopian literature; from Plato to the present. Answering a range of questions and written by a rising star in feminist economics it provides explanations of:
- the different kinds of feminism
- the evolution of feminist thought
- the development of feminist economics
- the history and sources of utopias as a theoretical and/or literary tool.
This volume is a must for all students studying the intersection of gender and economics.
