Barker and Feiner consistently recognize the importance of social location -- gender, race, class, sexual identity, and nationality -- in economic processes shaping the home, paid employment, market relations, and the global economy.

Throughout they connect womens economic status in the industrialized nations to the economic circumstances surrounding women in the global South.Rooted in the two disciplines, this book draws on the rich tradition of interdisciplinary work in feminist social science scholarship to construct a parallel between the notions that the personal is political and the personal is economic.
