"Why the future of economics and economic development must be feministShow content
Why the future of economics and economic development must be feminist.
This side-event will gather a panel of feminist economists to reflect on how can insights from feminist economics inform policies and contribute to the realization of women’s social and economic rights?
The distribution of resources remains gendered and processes of change, including economic crises, neoliberal reforms, welfare state retrenchment and globalization, have huge gendered impacts.
Today feminist economics has become an academic field of its own, which is an important source of theory, methods, tools and empirical evidence, necessary for policies and models to assure ending the economic discrimination against women.
