Abstract

[Excerpt] There are countless ways that prevailing economic theory dismisses and ignores the economic contributions of women. The labor movement's focus on paid work as the main arena for union struggle often makes "women's work" marginal. There is a connection between the lower wages received for "women's jobs" and the fact that women often do similar work at home for no wages. Any strategy for the labor movement to tackle organizing women workers in the global economy needs to recognize the multiple economic positions that we, as women, hold at work and at home.
