Currently, Jaggar is a member of "Fempov," a multidisciplinary and international research project whose aim is to produce a new poverty standard or metric capable of revealing the gendered dimensions of global poverty. In addition, she is exploring the potential of a naturalized approach to moral epistemology for addressing moral disputes in contexts of inequality and cultural difference.</p> <p>Her lecture will address the fact that women across the world work longer hours than men who are otherwise situated similarly, analyzing worldwide gendered time-use disparities in terms of global gendered exploitation. &nbsp;This alternative analytic framework, she will argue, better enables identifying those who are politically responsible for the injustice and points in the direction of a more gender-just future.</p> <p>As a founding member of the Society for Women in Philosophy and a former president of the American Philosophical Association, Jaggar has taken a lead role in working to improve the global status of women. She works in the areas of contemporary social, moral, and political philosophy, often from a feminist perspective.</p> Amnesty International Film Screening and Discussion: "Google Baby" Thu, 15 Nov 2012 17:02:43 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-06-amnesty-international-film-screening-and-discussion-google-baby https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-06-amnesty-international-film-screening-and-discussion-google-baby <p><em>Thursday, December 6, 2012 7:00 PM</em></p><p>CC's Amnesty International student group presents a documentary film screening, followed by a discussion.
