Feminist Economics Research Notes Feminist Economics

Feminist Economics is a peer-reviewed journal that provides an open forum for dialogue and debate about feminist economic perspectives. By opening new areas of economic inquiry, welcoming diverse voices, and encouraging critical exchanges, the journal enlarges and enriches economic discourse. The goal of Feminist Economics is not just to develop more illuminating theories but to improve the conditions of living for all children, women, and men.

We are delighted to host Feminist Economics Research Notes (FERNs) on an easily accessible platform.

This series of concise notes summarizes articles published in each issue of Feminist Economics, with the aim to make important new feminist economic research available to a broader audience. The notes provide policymakers, activists, and students with access to informed analyses of economic issues influencing the well-being of women, children, and men.
