Summary
This collection of articles seeks to extend the boundaries of political economy by exploring the theoretical and policy implications of incorporating diversity into economic theory and public policy. Throughout the work, contributing authors present feminist economics in dialogue with progressive economic theory and public policy. The application of gender analysis in the reformulation of theory draws broadly on empirical studies of women's economic activity and pays close attention to the dynamics of class, race, and sexuality in interaction with gender
