    1 thought on “Seriously!: Investigating Crashes and Crises as If Women Mattered”

    1. This was a good, feminist critique of issues that I often don't see covered through such a lens. I learned a lot from the book, and came across a number of good pointers to other feminist economists and researchers, that I will be following up on.My only criticism is the tone of the book occasionally: throughout the book, I feel like Enloe is trying to convince the reader that feminist analysis is useful and important. But in my mind, the target audience of this book is already fairly convinced [...]

    2. Enloe at her smartest. This is a feminist-conscious analysis of everything from financial crises to the Egyptian revolution. My favorite parts were that (a) Enloe is very honest and personal about her own failings to perform gender analysis or hone feminist curiosity in the past and (b) Enloe is brilliant at providing a gender lens for phenomena and dynamics that appear to NOT be gendered (but in fact very much are!)
