Frader’s research focuses on the historical and cultural foundations of social inequality, particularly gender inequality. A current project focuses on the history of gender equality policies of the European community since the Treaty of Rome (1957) and their impacts on member states. A second project examines the place of gender and racial difference in French colonial thinking and practice.
