This inspiring book challenges mainstream ideas about development, held in both the global South and the global North, arguing that we must learn from the lives of low income women to reconstruct ideas about how economies function and what economic policies should be adopted at local, national and international levels. It should be read by everyone concerned to reduce inequality and end poverty
Decades ago Devaki Jain highlighted the significance of unpaid and unrecognised women’s work—which is now being recognised the world over as critical for economic analysis. This valuable collection of some of her important contributions shows how much she has innovated to expand analytical and empirical approaches in many other areas, in ways that will continue to be useful far into the future.
I am a long-standing admirer of the work and life of Devaki Jain, one of the most respected and influential Southern voices in promoting the advancement of women and gender equality. The unique combination of Devaki’s political nous, economic brilliance and grassroots activism, has made her the voice of the unheard and disadvantaged women in developing countries.
‘Decades ago Devaki Jain highlighted the significance of unpaid and unrecognised women’s work. This valuable collection of [Devaki Jain’s] important contributions shows how much she has innovated to expand analytical and empirical approaches in many other areas.’
“These volumes, easily accessible to an international audience, complement Jain’s already extensive publications and should be read and appreciated in concert …. (She) is intuitively intersectional, emphasizing the dialectic between diversity and unity.”
“These two books are remarkable contributions by a veteran feminist economist with an experience that spans the early period of India’s independence, forays into socialism and globalization and marks the unfolding of the women’s movement through these periods. These books are a must-read for all women’s studies.”
