Current Issue: Winter 2015

Risky Business

Economics have always factored into discrimination. Historically, women have been traded for dowries, skipped over for inheritances, and prohibited from owning property. The once-radical idea of women having control of their own finances is now normal in many parts of the world, and yet women’s work still tends to be risky business.

This issue of Outlook explores why women’s economic security remains so complicated.

The Tipping Point

Loosening the Pink Collar

Critics say the gender pay gap exists because women choose lower-paying jobs. But “women’s work” is still just plain undervalued.
