Feminist Economics was founded in 1994 by Diana Strassman (Rice University) on behalf of the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE). The first issue was published in 1995, and in 1997, it was named Best New Journal by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) in the international awards competition. Since its founding, Feminist Economics has grown to reach a wide, international audience with individual subscribers in more than 50 countries and a distribution to more than 5,000 libraries worldwide.
Founding Editor Diana Strassman was joined by Editor Günseli Berik (University of Utah) in 2010, who served until 2017. Elissa Braunstein (Colorado State University) became Co-Editor of Feminist Economics in 2017, taking over as Editor in 2020.
