Counting for nothing : what men value and what women are worth by Marilyn Waring( Book )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Counting for Nothing, originally published in 1988, is a classic feminist analysis of women's place in the world economy brought up to date in this reprinted edition, including a sizeable new introduction by the author. In her new introduction, the author updates information and examples and revisits the original chapters with appropriate commentary. In an accessible and often humorous manner, Waring offers an explanation of the current economic systems of accounting and thoroughly outlines ways to ensure that the significance of the environment and the labour contributions of women receive the recognition they deserve."--Jacket
Who's Counting? : Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies and Global Economics by Marilyn Waring( Visual )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marilyn Waring demystifies the language of economics by defining it as a value system in which all goods and activities are related only by their monetary value. She claims that monetary exchange with results in unpaid work - usually done by women - is unrecognized, and activities that may be environmentally and socially hazardous are regarded as productive. With irony and intelligence, she maps out an alternative economic vision based on the idea that time is the one thing we all have to exchange. Shot in Canada, New Zealand, New York City, the Persian Gulf, and the Philippines, this classic film is an entertaining primer for anyone who suffers from what Waring calls "economics anxiety
Three masquerades : essays on equality, work and hu(man) rights by Marilyn Waring( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a world where half the population is likely to be excluded from international human rights guarantees, where unpaid work is given no economic value, where parliamentary process denies women a voice - in such a world truths masquerade as lies." "Marilyn Waring writes, in these three essays, of the pretences that create and sustain inequality. Three Masquerades identifies some central myths that promote inequality, and explodes them with an accuracy that is at once devastating and humane."--Jacket
Women, politics & power : essays by Marilyn Waring( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marilyn Waring is a formidable presence in New Zealand politics. As Member of Parliament in the National Government, she took a courageous stand on a number of issues.

Anticipatory social protection : claiming dignity and rights by Marilyn Waring( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social protection landscape is currently characterised by competing discourses and agendas, given that bilaterals, multilaterals and private funders have different targets and have differing constituents whose lives they seek to improve. Critical aspects such as gender inequalities and inequities, women and children's agency and community coping mechanisms are often not adequately addressed. This publication introduces the Commonwealth Secretariat's anticipatory and transformative social protection approach, which outlines the principles and strategies for advancing a gender-responsive, human rights-based approach to social protection. It presents analysis and discussion of a framework for social protection, models of good practice from across the Commonwealth, and innovative ways of providing social protection that are not based on men and women being in full-time paid work in the formal economy. This publication will assist policy-makers and development practitioners in making informed decisions about programme design and delivery so that beneficiaries' access to and participation in social protection mechanisms are fully realised

Managing mayhem : work-life balance in New Zealand( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title explores the reality of what work-life balance means in Aotearoa-New Zealand. The editors have brought together recent research that reveals the complexities and nuances that people grapple with in their lives as they seek to balance unpaid work with paid work and still find time to live in between. It exposes the hidden issues for, among others, women who are Maori, of the Pacific, who are unpaid caregivers, older women parenting for the second time, or who are establishing businesses or living portfolio lives. Importantly it also examines the experiences of men, who until now have been under-represented in the debate. Each of the contributors adds richly-textured material to the richly-emerging mosaic of knowledge about work-life balance in Aotearoa-New Zealand
Who cares? : the economics of dignity : a case study of HIV and AIDS care-giving by Marilyn Waring( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the centre of the HIV/AIDS response are the 12 million people who need care and treatment. Those who are ill require support from carers who provide physical, social and psychological support. Yet these carers -- essential actors in the response -- are often invisible to the system that relies on them. The writers argue that focusing on the carer, at the household level, directs assistance where it is most effective and most needed, will respect human rights, and will help achieve the millennium development goals in health

Marilyn Waring on women and economics( Visual )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this film New Zealand politician and activist Marilyn Waring spends a day with local women her age in several developing countries. She witnesses the enormous, unrecorded, unacknowledged extent of women's work. Women remain more than 50 per cent of the world's population, yet hold no more than 10 per cent of the seats in national legislatures. In one government in three, there are no women in the highest decision making bodies. This video takes a hard look at the disparity between what women contribute to communities and how their work is valued

Marilyn Waring on politics : local & global by Marilyn Waring( Visual )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By approaching politics from the viewpoint of an average citizen, New Zealander politician and activist Marilyn Waring challenges the assumption that the systems that determine how the world currently does business are adequately meeting the needs of both local and global communities. Using plain language, Waring makes it clear that classic economics work to benefit one particular group while the rest of us -- the vast majority -- pay the price. -- from container
