Counting for nothing : what men value and what women are worth by Marilyn Waring( Book )
18 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 623 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
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 398 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
Who's counting? Marilyn Waring on sex, lies & global economics by Marilyn Waring( Visual )
15 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in English and held by 199 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

Who cares? : the economics of dignity : a case study of HIV and AIDS care-giving ( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 67 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."--Publisher

Marilyn Waring on women and economics ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 20 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
