Our Economy of Mothers and Others: Women and Economics Revisited

Joan C. Williams

This article argues that Americans need to fold the traditional debate on the proportion of women among the poor into a more sweeping analysis of the relationship between women and economics. The author suggests that we need to change each element of domesticity in order to create a new model for the analysis of women and economics. The piece begins with an overview of the elements for this new model and then describe each element in greater detail. Finally, the author proposes a framework that changes gender arrangements in both market work and family work.
