Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Apr 1, 2008 - Business & Economics - 246 pages

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.
