Book Title: Engendering Economics: Conversations with Women Economists in the United States

Author: Paulette I. Olson and Zohreh Emami

Book Description:

As noted in the preface, the experience of women in the field of economics differ not only from that of men, but from those of each other. This book contains interviews with women from a broad range of backgrounds and schools of thought who have contributed to the body of economic knowledge. This book reflects my interest in the different approaches economists take in analysis of economic issues and economic policy debates. It reflects my interest in the history of economic thought. It reflects my respect for the dedication and persistence of the women who made inroads into the discipline of economics. It reflects my respect and admiration for the hard work and contributions of the authors' of this book to economics in general and to me personally. Thank you.
