13 Jun 2019

Economics and gender studies researchers and students now have access to a new body of work that looks at gender inequality from a multidisciplinary perspective.

According to Emeritus Professor Clem Tisdell from UQ’s School of Economics, his book Gender Inequality: Socioeconomic Analysis and Developing Country Case Studies may be the first of its kind to consider the combined influences of economic, social and cultural factors on gender inequality.

Emeritus Professor Tisdell said his goal was to increase awareness of the complexity of gender inequality.
