"Is Capitalism Good for Women?”
Ann E. Cudd (U. of Kansas)
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.
