ECON 320 Women in the World Economy

Prerequisite: ECON 200 or ECON 205 or ECON 206 or by permission of the instructor. (First semester—as needed/3 credits) 

This course analyzes the working activities of women by using a comparative economic systems approach. Although women are core economic producers, most women’s work remains outside of the neoclassical definition and counting of economic activity. Therefore, the class will examine women’s marginalization within the discipline by examining recent thought and writings by feminist economists concerning the production of economic knowledge.
