CAPABILITIES, FREEDOM, AND EQUALITY Amartya Sen's Work from a Gender Perspective
CAPABILITIES, FREEDOM, AND EQUALITY Amartya Sen's Work from a Gender Perspective
Description
From the Jacket:

This unique volume is the first to examine Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen's ideas through the lens of the gender. Renowned for his humanitarian approach to economics, his contributions have been crucial to the development of several aspects of feminist economics and gender analysis. This book outlines the range and usefulness of his work from a gender perspective while also exploring some of its silences and implicit assumptions.

The result in a collection of groundbreaking and insightful essays which cover major topics in Sen's work, such as capability approach, freedom, social choice, justice, agency, 'missing women', and development well-being. Perspectives have been drawn from both developing and developed countries, with most of the authors applying Sen's concepts to cultural, geographic, and historical contexts which differ from his original applications.

The multidisciplinary volume makes for a compelling read for both economists and scholars from other disciplines, as well as for policymakers and practitioners.
