Example text

Inequality among men, by contrast, has a more straightforward interpretation because it is not dependent on the extent of gender inequality. I begin in the first section with a brief description of the method and measures used in the empirical analysis. This is followed in the second section by a discussion of how measures of gender, class, and racial inequality are correlated across a large number of labor markets in the United States. It is from these correlations that the general contours of the configurations are developed, first for the relationship between gender inequality and inequality among women, and then for inequality among men and racial inequality.

As a result, the nature of differences among women, especially racial differences, is at the heart of feminist theory and research today. Even in the social sciences, one can find a number of excellent studies on economic inequality between black and white women in the United States,13 though even the most recent of these also tend to be micro-oriented studies in the human capital tradition (England et al. 1999). In contrast, there has been little in the way of unraveling the relationship between gender and class, in terms of either class inequality among women or Restructuring Inequalities 13 gender inequality by class.

One might therefore erroneously conclude that postindustrialism is the cause of inequality and a new industrialism is the solution. A spatial analysis is able to investigate this question directly in much the same way cross-national analyses differentiate between the correlates of levels and changes in inequality. I would like to close out this section by finally turning to some of the weaknesses of the mesocomparative analysis of inequality as I have conceived it. First, I have just argued that it is dangerous to attribute the causes of temporal patterns (rising inequality) to those of spatial patterns (high regional levels of inequality).
