|Title:||Feminist Reflections on Basic Income||Authors:||Barry, Ursula||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/9734||Date:||14-Mar-2018||Online since:||2019-03-28T10:59:36Z||Abstract:||Feminist economics, which grew in influence from the mid-1980s, encompassed a strong critique of the assumptions underlying the welfare state developments in Western Europe. It was argued that the link between paid employment and welfare entitlements, which was a fundamental element of most welfare states, reflected a perspective that showed a complete lack of recognition of the fluidity of women’s economic activities. This lack of recognition that women’s economic lives are likely to be shaped by a spectrum of economic activity which includes: paid employment - home-based carer – part-time employment – underemployment – unpaid work. Such a fluid economic picture fell largely outside the male-oriented binary image of employment: unemployment that underlay the thinking shaping western welfare states.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Policy Press||Copyright (published version):||2018 Policy Press||Keywords:||Basic income; Feminism; Feminist economics; Radical economics; Women’s economic independence||Other versions:||https://policypress.co.uk/its-basic-income||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Downes, A., Lansley, S.
