Lecture: Equality for Women = Prosperty for All

07/20/2019, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Smith Hall at the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities, Greenville, SC 29601

Augusto Lopez-Claros, 2018-2019 Senior Fellow at the Edmund Walsh School of Foreign Service Georgetown University, will be in Greenville on July 20 to share the surprising ways in which global prosperity is connected to the equality of women. As he and Bahiyyih Nakhjavani explain in their new book, the true economics of gender inequality extends far beyond equal pay for equal work because inequality leads to political instability, gives rise to endemic poverty, and provokes cultural disaffection. When women are deprived of their rights, violence increases, the foundations of economic prosperity are eroded, democracies are weakened, and the fabric of a nation’s society can be radically undermined
