The feminist economy emphasizes the incorporation of the gender variable (woman, man, others) to explain the workings of the economy and markets.

The overlap of this public agenda discourse has led to regulations for equality. In this scenario, “intersectionality,” gender quotas, salary gaps, and gender equality will be the dialogue cornerstones.
