From entrenched gender bias to economic empowerment: undermining the patriarchy

Nayak, Bhabani Shankar, Hwang, Eunju and Malkar, Utkarsha, eds. (2023) From entrenched gender bias to economic empowerment: undermining the patriarchy. Sustainable Development Goals Series (SDGS) . Palgrave, London. ISBN 9783031572111 (In Press)


This book examines entrenched gender bias and the economic, political, and social systems that enable patriarchy. With examples from both the developed and developing world, it highlights how women receive lower financial rewards within the capitalist system and explores how working operations, economic frameworks, and political institutions protect gender bias. By examining cases where traditional power structures have been deconstructed, a framework is created for gender equality through cooperative and collaborative action, where everyone is included within the capitalist system. A particular focus is given to the economic involvement of rural women, the potential for technology to assist female empowerment in India, gender equality within the creative industries, and the persistence of patriarchy in the UK.

This book shows how economic progress can be inclusive and how it can benefit women across the world. It will be of relevant to students and researchers interested in labour economics, the political economy, and gender studies.
