In this series, host Rosemarie Fike—in conversation with renowned female economists and thinkers—explores the ways in which economic progress has historically affected women’s well-being, and whether markets and individual rights are consistent with feminist goals.
Artificial Restrictions and Hindrances to Progress
Dr. Jayme Lemke joins host Rosemarie Fike to discuss the ways in which markets and economic progress can impact the lives of women, including: the difference between feminist activism and feminist philosophy, artificial restrictions created via institutional setbacks, informal institutions, and cultural failures. They even discuss the economist's opinion on household labour and matters of choice.
Are they absent or have they been historically absent: A question of true equality
Dr. Anne Rathbone Bradley joins host Rosemarie Fike to discuss the ways in which markets and economic progress can impact the lives of women, including: definitions of feminism, how the semantics game is played, and why having a bottom-up approach is optimal. They even discuss the intersection between these ideas and faith and religion, and how mobility rights and the freedom of choice have been instrumental historically.
