A survey of alternative approaches to the study of gender inequalities in capitalist societies. Objectives are threefold: 1) Consider the relationship between feminism and economics, and evaluate the ways in which gender is introduced into economic theories; 2) Examine competing theories of the household and of gender inequalities in capitalist labor markets and the empirical evidence for these theories; 3) Evaluate economic and social policy issues concerning gender. Intersections of gender with class and race will be one focal point of analysis.
