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> Open House, Office of Communications Wed, 28 Nov 2012 17:35:57 MST https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-06-open-house-office-of-communications https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-12-06-open-house-office-of-communications <p><em>Thursday, December 6, 2012 3:30 PM</em></p><p>Faculty and Staff in the Natural Sciences Division are invited to see the work of the Office of Communications and let us know how we can help you.</p>
