A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

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.

Rose Director Friedman

J. Daniel Hammond


163 from 1982 until 1984 and vice-president of that organization in 1987. She died of cancer on 19 October 1992, at the age of 54, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Friedlaender’s academic interests were largely in the area of transport economics. The author and co-author of many papers, her most important work included The Dilemma of Freight Transportation (1969), Freight Transport Regulation (1981) with R.H. Spady, and Government Finance (1981) with John F. Due. Evidence of her continuing influence on the field is provided by the many citations and reprints of her empirical studies of transport regulation.
