Counting for Nothing
What Men Value and What Women are Worth (Heritage)
"Counting for Nothing" by Marilyn Waring sheds light on the gender bias that exists in the current system of calculating national wealth. The author observes how women are considered non-producers and cannot expect to gain from the distribution of benefits. This classic feminist analysis proposes ways to ensure the significance of the environment and the labor contributions of women receive the recognition they deserve.
Reading Counting for Nothing by Marilyn Waring completely shifted my thinking about everything. I still credit her book as one of the pivotal moments in my life (and the development of my thinking). Tnks for reminding me of this article @deBeauxOs1 (also, Patsy avatar? AWESOME!) – source
