 Economy outside the market
Waring was outraged that this system valued destructive activity like war and environmental damage, while ignoring much subsistence labour and unpaid work in the home -- both of which were (and still are) done primarily by women.
Waring demonstrated with numerous examples that such difficulties were no more extreme than existed in other cases where estimates of non-market production were made by statistical agencies -- often by the same statisticians and agencies who argued that it was too hard.
Waring may be remembered as one who championed the cause of “counting women's work” in the national accounts, but she was better than that.

Professor Marilyn Waring, a leading public policy expert with special interests in human rights issues and “probably one of New Zealand’s best known lesbian women,” has denounced suggestions that civil unions have anything to offer the “gay” community in terms of gaining “human rights”.

Waring: They really understood in terms of the way in which their jurisdiction operates that they had to wait until they knew they could win.
