About the book 

Women are shaping every aspect of the global economy, including as leaders in finance, investment or trade. ‘Women Shaping Global Economic Governance’ collects the views and ideas on economic governance from over 20 of these female leaders in policymaking, academia, private business and journalism. Built around four sections, the book gathers insights and forward-looking suggestions regarding current challenges in finance, trade, investment and the global labour market in a context marked by rapid technological, political, environmental and social change. Authored entirely by female contributors, this publication stands for gender equality not by discussing issues that matter for women in the economy but rather by having women proposing solutions to economic and financial issues that matter for all.’ Contributors include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, IMF Head Christine Lagarde, and EU Commissioner Cecilia Malmström.
