#morewomeninecon

Across the world educational reform has seen disciplines that were once male-dominated become much more level playing fields. In economics, this is not the case. Women are underrepresented in economics, in the student body and in academia, and this becomes worse as education progresses.
We want the government and universities to start doing more to get more women and BAME students into economics. This might be through changing the economics curricula so that it considers women, by working more with school's so that the amount of women who study economics at a-level go on to study economics at university, or by supporting the few female economists to gain more recognition for their fantastic work in journals and the media.

Rethinking Economics, is a small charity originally set up by students. We campaign to change the economics curriculum, so that we can have economics graduates that can deal with the economic issues of the 21st century.
