Political Economy of Gender (PEG)
We are an interdisciplinary group of faculty and graduate students across the social sciences that studies questions related to the political economy of gender. The political economy of gender is a field that seeks to understand the social and institutional mechanisms that contribute to gender inequality. Key areas of research consider the formation of households, bargaining power within them, the gender division of labor in the home, occupational segregation, wage gaps, representation gaps, and gender voting gaps.
