Event description

Description

Dame Marilyn Waring is best known for her 1988 book If Women Counted. Through her research and writing she is known as the principal founder of the discipline of feminist economics. Since 2006, Waring has been a Professor of Public Policy at the Institute of Public Policy at AUT in Auckland, New Zealand, focusing on governance and public policy, political economy, gender analysis, and human rights. She has outspokenly criticised the concept of Gross Domestic Product, the economic measure that became a mainstay of national accounting following World War II. She criticises the system which counts oil spills and wars as contributors to economic growth, while child-rearing and housekeeping are deemed valueless. Her work has influenced academics, government accounting in a number of countries, and United Nations policies.

We will begin with light refreshments at 5:30pm and we will enjoy Marilyn's talk from 5:45pm.
