Looking at women's power in the home, in the workplace, and in politics from a political economy perspective, Torben Iversen and Frances Rosenbluth demonstrate that equality is tied to demand for women's labour outside the home, which is a function of structural, political, and institutional conditions. They go on to explain several anomalies of modern gender politics: why women vote differently from men; why women are better represented in the workforce in the United States than in other countries but less well represented in politics; why men share more of the household work in some countries than in others; and, why some countries have such low fertility rates. The first book to integrate the micro-level of families with the macro-level of national institutions, "Women, Work, and Politics" presents an original and groundbreaking approach to gender inequality.
