Why I am a Feminist Economist: Understanding Economics and the Value of Work
Dr. Sarah Small ’16, Assistant Professor of Economics, University of Utah
Dr. Claudia Goldin’s recent Nobel prize – the first to be awarded solely to a woman economist- is a long overdue acknowledgement of the importance of women’s work within economics. And yet Dr. Goldin’s work is limited to the paid work of higher income women in high income countries. Meanwhile, economists across the globe have been working to construct a body of knowledge called Feminist Economics. Sarah Small ’16, Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Utah, discusses some of the distinguishing features of feminist economics as a body of knowledge, with a particular focus on how it helps us better understand gender and work in the global economy today.

Sarah F Small is an Assumption University alumna (2016) and is currently an assistant professor of economics at the University of Utah. After graduating from Assumption, Sarah earned her PhD at Colorado State University, held positions at Rutgers and Duke universities, and worked on local policy research in Colorado. Her current research focuses on feminist economics, covering care markets and intrahousehold bargaining in the United States.
