This course explores how existing gender norms and gender inequalities shape the financial opportunities, constraints and challenges faced by women and men. It gives special attention to the economic contribution of unpaid or nonmarket work, including the work to care for families and volunteer in communities, which enables the market economy to function. It highlights the perspectives and experiences of women in the U.S., as well as in other developed and developing countries. Topics for consideration include occupational segregation, the feminization of poverty, entrepreneurship and microfinance, savings and asset ownership, and the current financial crisis
