Feminist Economics

Feminist Economics is a peer-reviewed journal, supported by Colorado State University and Rice University, 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 aims to enlarge and enrich economic discourse. Feminist Economics seeks to not just develop more illuminating theories, but also to improve the conditions of living for all children, women, and men.

The journal is sponsored by the International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE), an organization that has official NGO status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

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.
