34. Notable Women researchers on Economic Develolpment



Contributions of our Association to the visibility of Notable Women Economists:
In this Blog and in our journal "Applied Econometrics and International Development" we will contribute to foster visibility of Notable Women Economists in several fields, particularly in Economic Development. We expect to update the information with new discoveries.

As a first approach to this question we present a list of 17 Notable Women with the following features:
1) They are included in the Top 5% authors by a mean of several  criteria of the general Score of Ideas.Repec (citations, number of works, dissemination of works thorugh on line downloads).

2) They are included in the list of economists with 5 or more Working Papers in the field of "development" (DEV) accordingly to the NEP classification of Ideas.Repec 

3) They are included in the list of authors with more article downloads at Ideas.Repec.

Goals of this post: We try to contribute to the international visibility of the works of Women researchers in Economics, particularly those studies of special interest for socio-economic development at World level. Our Euro-American Association of Economic Development Studies, has devoted, for the period 2001-2018, many efforts to contribute to foster visibility of Women researchers in the field of Economic Development and in other fields of Economics.

This table present a list of 17 Notable Women Economists, with outstanding results in the rankings of the international Website of academic research Ideas.Repec. Thre first column of rank indicates the position accordingly to the number of downloads of articles corresponding to each author in this list and the second column indicates the position of each author in this list accordingly to the general score of Ideas.Repec.  The highest position is number 1. 

These 17 female authors are included among top 5% researchers out of more than 50000 Economics researchers, from all over the World,  at Ideas.Repec.  The distribution by countries is as follows:
United States: 10
United Kingdom: 3
Germany: 2
Spain: 1
Australia: 1

Problems: It is well known that there are some hostile actitudes towards the role of Women on Economics research, and that several important institutions and associations have created special committees to deal with this important problem. In our view some unfriendly behaviours are the following ones:

1) Lack of gender statistics. In this regard we welcome the initiative of the United Nations to foster concern on this question.
2) Lack of women citation on several Encyclopedias: Wikipedia includes around 1000 authors in "Economists Lists", of which only 5.2% are Women. Britannica includes an entry with 241 economists, with only 15 Women (6.2%). Both percentages are clearly below the percentage of Women on the Top 10% Economics researchers (around 20% of more than 5000 authors included in the top 10% of more than 50000 Economics researchers registered at the international Website Ideas.Repec.
3) Lack of enough distinctions to the most qualified women in many books, medals, television news, and other means of communication.
