A feminist approach to macro-economics [en]
30 December 2003

Distinction between gender and feminist political economy. A gender approach is based on disclosing gender inequalities, within given analytical and political contexts.



 

A feminist one on a critical perspective on the capitalist relationship between production fro profit and social reproduction of the labouring population, based on body, living conditions, sexual division of paid and unpaid work, caring responsibilities towards others and one self, material and symbolic dimensions. In this perspective women’s historical experience becomes the ground for an epistemological shift and for a feminist political agency, directly focussed on the quality of life of women and men.

Direct struggles on living conditions have to be waged in the context of sexual and class power relationships and of the historical process of the accumulation of capital taking place at global level with dramatic effects on subsistence, wages, labour rights, time use, and security of the international labouring population, formed by women and men, young and old, employed an unemployed, waged and unwaged.

A feminist critical perspective challenges all the basic institutions: family, market and state, in ways that the traditional left, including its female sections, is resisting to aknowledge although sometimes using a kind of feminist jargon.

Alternative proposals

A direct assumption of responsibility towards one’s own and others’ quality of life on behalf of adult men.

Implementation

With social movements that fully recognize women’s agency and struggle directly on the quality of life and security of living conditions.
