Feminist Economics Journal

Feminist Economics (FE) is a top-ranked economics and gender studies journal publishing cutting-edge feminist economic research. The journal aims to expand the boundaries of economic research while embracing diverse viewpoints. By encouraging critical exchanges, Feminist Economics contributes to the enrichment and growth of economic discourse. Its overarching objective goes beyond the development of enlightening theories; it endeavors to enhance the well-being of all women, men and children. 

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. In particular, it: 

  • Advances feminist inquiry into economic issues affecting the lives of children, women, and men
  • Examines the relationship between gender and power in the economy and the construction and legitimization of economic knowledge
  • Extends feminist theoretical, historical, and methodological contributions to economics and the economy
  • Offers feminist insights into the underlying constructs of the economics discipline and into the historical, political, and cultural context of economic knowledge
  • Provides a feminist rethinking of theory and policy in diverse fields, including those not directly related to gender
  • Stimulates discussions among diverse scholars worldwide and from a broad spectrum of intellectual traditions, welcoming cross-disciplinary and cross-country perspectives, especially from countries in the South.
