In this week’s lecture, film and discussion, we’ll be looking at women and work- starting with some of the earliest First Wave feminist thinkers and Engels, who inspired Marxist Feminists. Please watch the lecture, then the film and then join the discussion.Hello there!
I look forward to your thoughts this week based upon the lecture and film we watched on a feminist economist.
In the film “Who’s Counting: Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies, and Global Economics” •
Marilyn Waring is one of the most well-known spokespersons for global feminist economics
• Her ideas offer new avenues of approach for political action.
• She has succeeded in drawing attention to the fact that GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has no negative side to its accounts–such as damage to the environment–and completely ignores the unpaid work of women.
• “Why is the market economy all that counts?” Ms. Waring asks.
• She has challenged the myths of economics, its elitist stance, and our tacit compliance with political agendas that masquerade as objective economic policy.
Your questions this week:
How feasible do you think it is to shift the cost of raising children to the entire workforce and to older generations?
What does this issue have to do with your life now and in the future?
As always, please respond, then respond to two other students before
