A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

Elgar original reference

Edited by Robert W. Dimand, Mary Ann Dimand and Evelyn L. Forget

This major original reference work includes over one hundred specially commissioned articles on the lives and writings of women who made significant contributions to economics. It sheds new light on the rich, but too often neglected, heritage of women’s analysis of economic issues and participation in the discipline of economics. In addition to those who wrote in English, some notable Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Swedish women economists are included. This book will transform widely-held views about the past role of women in economics, and will stimulate further research in this exciting but underdeveloped field. It is dedicated to the memory of Michèle Pujol, a pioneer in the field.

My father, Maruti Chandawarkar, was a highly motivated educationalist who actively supported the education of the deprived, particularly women and child-widows. When I was two, my family moved to Belgaum, a multilingual town, a place of confluence of north and south Indian cultural traditions known particularly for its music, dramatic arts and folk culture. It was also a politically alive place, a frontier town on the borders of the Portuguese colony of Goa. As part of the nationalist freedom movement, the young socialists were active in the town.
