Introductory Remarks: The Liberated Economy Economic concepts do not mirror the natural world; they are socially  constructed.  Gender, sexuality, race, and class matter Social justice: women and men, regardless of social or geographic  location, can shape their destinies by sharing power in the home,  workplace, and the government Goals of social justice: a life of dignity, distributive fairness, equity, the  universal provisioning of needs, elimination of poverty, freedom from  discrimination, social cohesiveness, and strengthening of human capabilities Trends in recent decades: increase in women’s participation in paid  labor market and feminization of labor on a global scale.
