Claudia Goldin: the economics of women and the labour market

Barbara Petrongolo

CentrePiece - The magazine for economic performance from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: The study of gender was far from mainstream in economics when Claudia Goldin began her research on women and work in the 1980s. Barbara Petrongolo discusses the impact of the 2023 economics Nobel laureate in shaping today's research frontier on gender inequalities - from public policy to the stereotypes and social norms that have such a powerful influence on women's participation in the labour market.
