Women, Family, and Work is a collection of original essays on topics related to the economics of gender and the family. Written by leading thinkers in the field, the chapters apply traditional economic theory to non-traditional topics, while also stretching and bending neoclassical economic thought to provide a better model of economic interactions. The chapters cover a diverse range of topics, including the economics of marriage: the division of work in the household: the economics of childbearing and childcare: and the gender gap in wages. The various viewpoints of the essays, including neoclassical and feminist, and heterosexual and homosexual, contribute to the comprehensive nature of the book. This collection explores how economics can be applied to realms outside of the marketplace, and challenges readers to critically examine the connections between the domain of family and care and the domain of labor market work.
