Three Masquerades: Essays in Work, Equality and Human Rights

Marilyn Waring probes the world behind the mask in the three essays presented in this volume. The first essay examines the mask that women who hold parliamentary office are forced to wear. It questions the reasons behind women being trapped by institutionalism, the effect this has on their ability to make progress on issues important to them and the effect it has on self-image. The second essay looks at concepts of work and economics.
