  1. Wow, I am studying political Rconomy at berkeley and I am so struck how women would do economic policy so differently but they, we, have not had a voice in this. I am looking into a summer session at LSE. Can you suggest a class that relates to this please?

    1. Hi Carenna, thanks so much for your comment. Yes I think that the world will be an entirely different place once more women take up decision making and policy roles and start to redefine how we do business and economics. There is going to be one hell of a paradigm shift! I can’t suggest a class that relates to this field, Gender Economics is really brand new and I have had trouble explaining it to universities here in Australia as there is no course for it. What I can suggest is that you take some sociology subjects to learn about the history of gendered economics and the way that policy, religion and economics and I guess laws have been created in the first place. I am continuing to talk about Gender and Diversity Economics and you could look at the Gender Economics Conference in Spain that I have just posted about. You may also want to contact Dr Caren Grown at the London School. I will also do that and keep you up to date of any progress. Good luck, I would love to hear about your journey with this and if you would like to submit an article to this website, please let me know.
