There's a really important conversation going on in economics about gender bias in the field. This is an illuminating thread reporting on a panel discussion about the topic.
In terms of the gender/economics debate, I wonder if the question might not be illuminated by some intellectual history. The field has been shaped to a significant degree by figures who defined themselves in opposition to social movements (like feminism).
I'd love, for example, to see a gender analysis of the work of F.A. Hayek, who once argued that John Stuart Mill became a socialist because he has henpecked by the feminist Harriet Taylor
We need more critical intellectual histories of economics. I worry that the polarized reaction to "Democracy in Chains" is going to discourage that.
