Abstract:

In Equal Value, theologian Carol S. Robb explores the economic situation of American women, inextricably bound up with ideas about sexual ethics, justice, and sexual roles. She shows how persistent economic discrimination against women - from the inadequacy of maternity leave policies to the enduring segregation of women in low-paying jobs - often keeps women from achieving economic parity with men. Using biblical and philosophical models of justice, she shows how these forms of discrimination are dramatically at odds with a just society. And she shows how public policy, sexual ethics, and the economy itself must change in order to ensure that women's work is valued equally with men's.
