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.

Her enthusiasm, availability and dedication, as well as the clarity of her econometric and macroeconomic teaching, were deeply appreciated by all her students. Her beneficial influence on students was magnified through the many pedagogical responsibilities she took on through those years. Lise Salvas-Bronsard was president of the Société Canadienne de Science Économique in 1984–85 and an associate editor of L’Actualité Économique, to which she contributed (Salvas-Bronsard, 1985; Bronsard and SalvasBronsard, 1980, 1988b, 1992; Allard, Bronsard and Salvas-Bronsard, 1994; Forest, Gourieroux and Salvas-Bronsard, 1997).
