Discussion |
Women’s economic empowerment has now become a buzzword both in international institutions and policymaking, with the SDGs making it a priority. Economists and policymakers have generally considered greater labor force participation as the primary channel through which such empowerment can be achieved. But is more work necessarily the answer? Considering that poor women from the South have always worked excessively long hours, that the nature of work itself is often degrading, exploitative and poorly paid, and that most women work a double day, is this emphasis on work as empowerment misplaced? Given the rapid rise of robotic and AI technologies that threaten future job creation particularly in exports, can we imagine alternative paths to economic empowerment that recognize women's 'invisible' labor? What role do a Universal Basic Income and other social protection schemes play in this regard? Is it possible to reimagine work as an aesthetic and creative category rather than simply a category of capitalist production? How can feminist economics contribute to this discussion? This panel will reflect on women and work from different perspectives and debate this issue through brief presentations and interaction. Speakers: Diane Elson, Julie Nelson, Shahra Razavi, Marina Durano Moderator: Sheba Tejani

The seventeenth century's Queen Njinga was one of the most multifaceted rulers in history, mixing political cunning and military prowess. At the height of her reign in the 1640s Njinga ruled almost one-quarter of modern-day northern Angola. Today, Njinga is revered in Angola as a national heroine and honored in folk religions, and her complex legacy continues to resonate, forming a crucial part of the collective memory of the Afro-Atlantic world.  Speaker Linda Heywood, Professor of History and African American Studies at Boston University, offers the first full-length study in English of Queen Njinga’s long life and political influence.
