Fall 2012 Events

"Is Capitalism Good for Women?”
Ann E. Cudd (U. of Kansas)
Reynolds Hall
4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
November 9, 2012

Abstract: Must capitalism inevitably cause poverty and inequality for some groups of people? Are women destined to be the losers in this competitive game? Critics argue that capitalism leads to a race to the bottom, and promotes discrimination, objectification, and other social practices that are harmful to women especially. In this talk I argue that a progressive capitalism can be developed that promotes quality of life and freedom for the world’s women.

Prof. Cudd's talk was generously sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences as well as the Office of the Provost. Video is available here and here.
