This selected bibliography on economics and gender is part of the activities of the ECLAC/GTZ project "Mainstreaming the gender perspective in ECLAC and sectoral ministries". The main objective of this project is to strengthen the institutional capacity of the governments of Latin America and the Caribbean to formulate public policies and economic and social development proposals that specifically and effectively incorporate the principle of gender equity. This document is intended to facilitate the exchange and dissemination of information on gender and economics. It is also meant to contribute to the research and analysis of phenomena associated with recent processes of globalization and economic liberalization, and with changes in the roles performed by women and men, and the development policies adopted. The subjects addressed in the bibliography include the following: The effects of global and national economic processes on the traditional roles carried out by men and women, and the impact of gender stereotypes on their economic opportunities. Changes in labour relations and in working conditions arising from structural adjustment programmes and from transformations that have occurred as a result of the internationalization and liberalization of markets. New forms of employment -part-time, seasonal and discontinuous- and work in the informal sector of the economy. The common and differentiated effects of economic globalization on gender relations, and the potential it represents for women to exercise autonomy and economic rights. International trade, with an emphasis on the opportunities and restrictions it entails for women. Liberalization of the financial market, financial crises and their effects on the population. Macroeconomic, development and equity models, with an emphasis on the gap between the contributions women make to economies and the benefits they receive in return.
