Gender and the Economic Crisis
Praise for this book
‘Much of the commentary on the 2007/8 crisis has focused on thenancial sector, its epicentre, or at best, on its implications for the “realeconomy” in terms of economic slowdown and unemployment in theNorth. Much less attention has been given to developing countrieswhich have been embroiled in these crises even if they did not play apart in creating them. What this timely volume documents throughits empirically grounded case studies and analytical contributions, isa gendered analysis of the 2007/8 crisis seen through the interrelatedspheres of fi nance, production and reproduction, which demystifi es it byshowing its full effects on the lives of real women and men in developingcountries. Equally refreshing is the long-term perspective of the volume:rather than presenting the crisis as a sudden and abrupt event, whatit shows is that it was the culmination of more than three decades of ‘Washington Consensus’ policies of liberalization and commercialization(often through debt-related conditionalities). These policies increasedincome inequalities, overstretched women’s time and energies as workersand carers, and exposed families and households to systemic risks,without putting in place the social security systems that could increaseresilience and recovery.’

‘This is to my knowledge the fi rst book on the gender impacts of thecurrent fi nancial crisis and the global recession following the crisis.It is an enormous accomplishment to have brought together such adiverse collection of up-to-date papers with surprisingly recent data.The major strength of this collection of papers lies in its diversity,both regional as well as thematic. In addition, it contains a thoroughanalytical framework for evaluating the crisis and recession from a genderperspective, by Diane Elson. Together, this book provides a unique, earlyinsight into the gendered effects of the crisis well before national levelgender disaggregated data have come available through offi cial statistics.It thereby leaves no excuse to policy makers to ignore possible negativegender effects of their policies.’
