Kay Hymowitz - Faux Feminism Traffic Light Equality

Centre for Independent Studies

The contemporary western feminist movement has lost its way. Over the past century the feminist movement has achieved remarkable advances in securing equal rights for women in the West, but in other regions around the world women are still treated as second class citizens, the recent push for gender-equal traffic lights in Melbourne has trivialised the important issue of gender equality. Rather than fake feminist causes, how should we address the real obstacles to women’s freedom and opportunities in Australia and around the world? Visiting US expert Kay Hymowitz from New York’s Manhattan Institute and Judith Sloane, economist and contributing economics editor at The Australian discussed why the sisterhood is failing women on many vital political, social and cultural issues. The Centre for Independent Studies (CIS) promotes free choice and individual liberty, and defends cultural freedom and the open exchange of ideas. CIS encourages debate among leading academics, politicians, media and the public. We aim to make sure good policy ideas are heard and seriously considered so that Australia can continue to prosper into the future.
