The Economics of Gender, 3e offers an affordable, comprehensive, and up-to-date introduction to the contemporary research being conducted on the differences between women's and men's economic opportunities, activities, and rewards. * While focusing on contemporary US patterns, this text integrates an uniquely international comparative perspective * Discusses the pros and cons of various policies, including comparable worth and welfare programs * Revisions to the 3rd edition include fully updated data, inclusion of new research, and new examples and studies * Clear, readable, and provocative with helpful appendices to provide additional information for readers who have little experience with economics, while simultaneously providing further detail for the economically sophisticated * Flexible in design, for use by both labor economics students and women's studies programs without labor economics prerequisites
