About this book

This book explores the gendered nature of the historical emergence of modern finance markets and their expansion to a now global scale. It analyses the ways in which women were and still are marginalized in terms of financial activity and associated structures of power which play a critical role in shaping the contemporary global political economy.

Reviews

'An impressive contribution of this book is its rigorous deployment of gender as an analytical category that connects the dots between the everyday micro-practices of financial life and structural features of the global economy. Its rich historical detail reminds us that gendered relations of credit and finance have transformed over time and across myriad forms of political and economic organization.' - Professor Mary Condon, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Toronto, Canada
