    Using interviews with women from diverse backgrounds, Dabrowski makes an invaluable contribution to the debates around gendered politics of austerity in the UK.

    Exploring the symbiotic relationship between the state’s legitimisation of austerity and women’s everyday experiences, she reveals how unjust policies are produced, how alternatives are silenced, and highlights the different ways in which women are used and/or blamed.

    By understanding austerity as more than simply an economic project, this book fills important gaps in existing knowledge on state, gender and class relations in the context of UK austerity.

    Vicki Dabrowski is Associate Lecturer in Sociology at the University of York. Her research interests include gender, class inequality and the role of the state.
