VrauWL, a collective of women who have studied or are studying economics, organised a special session on feminist economics. Alyssa Schneebaum, who has done research on social mobility for the WWWforEurope project, lectured on the fundamentals of feminist economics and discussed some "applications" of modern feminist economics.
