Are there feminist, economic utopian visions amongst feminist economists? What are these visions? Is there a common vision for feminist economics or should there be? Can feminist economics be effective without a utopian vision?

Comprehensive and original, this book surveys the entire field of utopian literature; from Plato to the present. Answering a range of questions and written by a rising star in feminist economics it provides explanations of:

  • the different kinds of feminism
  • the evolution of feminist thought
  • the development of feminist economics
  • the history and sources of utopias as a theoretical and/or literary tool.

This volume is a must for all students studying the intersection of gender and economics.

Karin Sch'npflug is an Economist at the Austrian Ministry of Finance and also Lecturer at the University of Vienna, Austria.
