Frauen in der Ökonomie und Frauenökonomik: Zur Erklärung geschlechtsspezifischer Unterschiede in der Wirtschaft und in den Wirtschaftswissenschaften
There are substantial differences in the specialisation within the family, the economy and academics by sex. In order to explain such gender effects, the economic approach focuses on differences in the economic and political constraints and not on gender-specific dispositions and preferences. The division of labour in the family, the education decision and the wage gap, as well as the career choice concerning the occupational structure within the labour market and universities, are discussed using standard economic theory. The paper concludes with some tentative suggestions as to how these decisions by women and men could be influenced in a sensible way.
