The EMP in Eurasian Perspective

(p.223) 9 Conclusion
Capital Women

Jan Luiten

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the authors take a larger view and explore how different constellations of family organization have affected the position of women in societies across the Eurasian landmass. We discuss the recent contribution to the literature by Dennison and Ogilvie and provide our take on their work. A statistical analysis is conducted to see how significant the relationship between the position of women and economic development is as well as how family organization has affected the position of women. The conclusion is that family arrangements influence the position of women and that the position of women is an important determinant of economic development.

Keywords:   age of marriage, economic development, family systems, Eurasia, European Marriage Pattern
