    Focusing upon microfinance and micro-credit issues, the contributors to this volume ask just what role does earning play in transforming the power relations between men and women? How far does a change in gender roles affect beliefs about who has the power in the household, the marketplace or that state? And how can one value the unpaid work that most women perform in the home and family context?
