Feminist Economics

This stream of economics analyses the interrelationship between gender and the economy. Thereby, feminist economics also takes into account the unpaid, non-market intermediated part of the economy and society by examining the driving forces behind the common dichotomies of economic and social, productive and reproductive, masculine and feminine, paid and unpaid and public and private. Moreover, feminist economics analyses patriarchy and capitalism as interrelated forms of dominance. Against this background, questions arise about the distribution and disposal of property, income, power, knowledge and the human body.
