Economic Freedom and Women’s Wellbeing
April 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDTFree
Are markets forces of oppression for women, or do they provide women with an important means through which they might be able to improve their lives? This presentation explores this important question by examining the empirical relationship between economic freedom and a variety of measures of women’s wellbeing. We will also learn about how economic freedom is measured, highlight some of the legal barriers to exercising economic freedom that only apply to women in many parts of the world, and think about the economic implications of limiting the scope of women’s’ participation in the market.
This event is free and open to the public. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/economic-freedom-and-womens-wellbeing-with-rosemarie-fike-tickets-594975867837
