NATIONAL SEMINAR THE REAL JUSTICE OF WOMEN: LIBERTY, EQUALITY AND FRATERNITY
The movement for women’s rights arose in the early 19th century as an off-shoot of abolitionism, the anti-slavery movement that declared each human being to be a self-owner. As with other abolitionists, the early feminists were individualists who drew inspiration from the Declaration of Independence and its principles of individual rights and responsibility.
With this vision of individualist feminism, Liberty, Equality and fraternity for Women boldly explores a wide range of issues that confront the modern woman, including self-defense, economic well-being and employment, the family, technology, and much more. It champions competitive markets as the vehicle for women’s economic rights and prosperity. Acknowledging the dangers of technology, the book celebrates its possibilities and defends reproductive rights. And yet, it also defends the validity of choosing traditional values (e.g., to be a “stay-at-home mom”) for those who find satisfaction in doing so.
We are pushing for equal representation in politics, business, industry and throughout working life. We are pressing for equal pay and an equal opportunity to thrive. We are campaigning for equal parenting and caregiving and shared responsibilities at home to give everyone equal opportunities both in family life and in the workplace. We urge an education system that creates opportunities for all children and an understanding of why this matters. We strive for equal treatment of women by and in the media. We seek an end to violence against women.

Targeting gender equality and women’s economic empowerment is not only important from the perspective of realizing women’s rights but is also smart economics.
