Counting on Marilyn Waring: New Advances in Feminist Economics

Just out : Counting on Marilyn Waring: New Advances in Feminist Economics. Co-edited by Prof Ailsa McKay, Professor of Economics and Director WiSE Research Centre, Glasgow Caledonian University and Margunn Bjornholt, Director of Policy and Social Research in Norway.

This edited volume maps new advances in theories and practices in feminist economics and the valuation of women, care and nature since Marilyn Waring’s 1988 groundbreaking critique of the systems of national accounts. If Women Counted, it features theoretical, practical and policy oriented contributions, empirical studies and new conceptualisations, theorisations and problemisations of defining and accounting for the value of nature and unpaid household work, eco-feminisim, national and international policy processes, unpaid care and HIV/AIDS policy, activism and artwork, and mirrors the wide ranging impact and resonance of Waring’s work as well as the current frontiers of feminist economics.
