Recent economic research on women and families has increased both in volume and in range. This review covers studies of women's productive activities and their roles in the market and in the American family. It emphasizes new directions in nonmarket and family-related research and in contributions to the study of productive activities and work discontinuities over time. Although the writings of economists define the profile of issues considered relevant, contributions of other social scientists are also included.

The purpose of this article is to present in nontechnical language an overview of some of the recent economic literature relating to women. The article identifies the range of topical interests of economists and spells out some of the findings. This review cannot cover all of the economic areas bearing on women. It looks primarily at the literature relating to women's economic roles and omits a number of areas where a general, theoretical or analytic framework also has a relevance for women.
