Rewarding women financially for work Giving women reasonable wages
There is occurring major increases in women in the economic labour force. Across the North and South women are increasingly working outside of the home, admittedly first at the lowest paid jobs.
Mainstream economic perspectives, ranging from conservative liberal (neoclassical) to social liberal/social democratic approaches, to Marxian analyses are all inclined to make use of paradigms which privilege the market place and therefore produce bias against women. However, commentaries upon these frameworks, whether they arise out of discussion of women's waged work or women's domestic labour, typically just note women's exclusion from or marginality within economic categories, concepts and methods. An alternative perspective is almost never expounded, even by feminists. Even less likely to be recognized is the emotional and sexual labour provided by women. It is likely therefore that very narrowly constructed conceptions of economic citizenship are replacing rather than complementing the broader conceptions of social and political citizenship which the suffragists won for women a century ago.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
