Credible Economist Blog Series

The Women in Economics Network was created to promote and support the careers of female economists in Australia. As part of this, the Credible Economist blog series promotes public contributions by female economists and on the topic of gender economics.

The blog series was entitled Credible Economist following the release of the October 2020 Australian Federal Budget. Many women experts expressed dissatisfaction with the budget's consideration of women's issues, particularly as the pandemic was disproportionately affecting women (who lost more jobs and took on more unpaid work than men, while receiving less government support than men).

PMO staffer told journalist and advocate Georgie Dent that 'no one credible' was criticising the budget. This triggered the trending of #CredibleWomen over social media as supporters of gender equality across the country responded on behalf of Australian women.

The Credible Economist name was born, as the series raises the voices of credible female economists and highlights important issues facing women and girls today.
