On Friday, September 12 at 4:00 p.m. in Ballroom C of the WSU Student Union Building, Dr. Alison Jaggar, College Professor of Distinction at the University of Colorado, Boulder, will present “Measuring Gendered Poverty: Methodology and Morality.” The author of nearly 80 articles and author/editor of 10 books, Professor Jaggar is a pioneer in the field of feminist philosophy. She is the co-founder of the journal Hypatia and the Society for Women in Philosophy and very likely taught the first class on feminist philosophy in the United States. All are invited, and a reception will follow.
