Feminist Economics and the Social and Solidarity Economy

Abstract - EN

Feminist economics is a wide-ranging field of scholarship that aims to challenge the gender biased frameworks of economic theories, and create knowledge for a more just, sustainable world while bringing broader transdisciplinary visions into the picture. While it shares many common ideas and values with the SSE and offers key insights that can further the goals of the SSE, there has not been significant engagement between the two approaches. In this entry, I highlight key analytical insights from feminist economics that have relevance for the SSE and trace out the connections.
