Does Globalization Need a Gender Perspective? — GED Blog

“In almost every are of study, economics overlooks sex, gender and women’s freedom”

“By leaving human reality in the cold, economists have not only over-simplified the world but have limited their ability to understand it”

“Women’s freedom is too often seen as a by-product of growth, rather than as an underlying driver”

“Women’s freedom creates growth”

“Whilst women help growth, growth doesn’t always return the favor”

“Gender equality should never be taken for granted”
