Extrait de la couverture : "All around the world, women work. Yet the work they do has always been, and continues to be, considered as less important than that performed by men. In many cases women's activities are not even acknowledged as work. Not only do women encounter more obstacles than men in education and training, but they are over-represented amongst the lowest paid, part-time workforce, enjoying few employement rights. Recognition of this has led to adoption of measures over the past two decades to eliminate gender discrimination and to promote equality of opportunity and treatement for women workers. Thos book is a contribution to the efforts being made, mainly by women themselves, to ensure that these intiatives are implemented. The author draws together research on gender, work and development, and emphasises that the concept of work should include not only paid labour but all of those activitie which contribute to production and development."

ISBN-13 : 0804717656
Hardcover : 228 Pages


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Carole Pateman is one of the leading political theorists writing today. This wide-ranging volume brings together for the first time a selection of her work on democratic theory and feminist criticism of mainstream political theory. The volume includes substantial discussions of problems of democracy, citizenship and the welfare state, including the largely unrecognized difficulties surrounding women's participation. The inclusion of essays from both a mainstream and feminist perspective provides concrete examples of the differences between these two approaches to democracy, to questions of consent and political obligation, and to the relationship between the private and public spheres. This scholarly and highly challenging work will be of interest to students and researchers in political theory, political science, women's studies and sociology.
