Women's labor-unpaid and paid-is a crucial, yet often overlooked or undercounted component of economic activity in industrial countries. This course presents an historical overview of the economic roles of women in the US and how economic theories explain these roles. The course focuses on why women's economic status has remained subordinate to men's and discusses policies directly affecting women's economic position.
