Feminist economics is clinically significant in economics and economies, based on economic studies of gender-consciousness and equality, as well as its importance in public policy. Feminist economic analysis involves economists, politicians, decision-makers and professionals. Feminist economic research is often focused on topics that have been previously ignored, such as care jobs, intimate relationship abuse, or economic models that may be strengthened by greater integration of gender consequences and relationships, such as between the paying and unpaid segments of the economy. Other feminist researchers have participated in new methods of data collection and analysis, such as gender-based interactions. Feminist economics is directed toward the goal of improving the well-being of girls, males, and females, in local, national, and multinational cultures. This article examines the points of view of various economists, philosophers, and particularly feminist economists, with a focus on Asia.
