Economist and feminist Prue Hyman explores the impact of economic policy on women, particularly during the 1980s. This provocative book is a powerful statement about the lives of women in New Zealand.

Women and Economics begins with a challenge to orthodox economic analysis and theory, and raises compelling argument in favour of a fresh approach to economics. This is followed by a details study of pay equity in the contemporary environment of the Employment Contracts Act, individual contracts, and reduced levels of collective bargaining. Here, international comparisons provide a wider framework. The role of the state in relation to economic independence and income maintenance is discussed with particular reference to the range of women’s experiences both within and outside the paid workforce. Special consideration is given to two areas of particular concern to women – the position of older women and housing policy.

Finally, Prue Hyman looks to the future, and suggests some exciting, and radical, avenues for reappraisal and change. Her message is clear: economic analysis must take on board the crucial contribution of women, not only as workers and consumers but also as critics of orthodox economic policy.
