On Sunday, July 9, 2017, 6-7 PM (EDT) Joy of Resistance: Multicultural Feminist Radio @ WBAI, will present Jenny Brown, organizer for National Women’s Liberation (NWL) and author of Myth America, Women’s Liberation and National Healthcare* and Gabrielle Muller, NWL member and healthcare activist, in a discussion of why Single Payer health insurance would have profound feminist ramifications and may even be the next step in women’s liberation.
Areas covered will include:
*The connections between a national healthcare system and a full Social Wage program (of which it would be one component) and how that would give women more leverage with both employers and the men in their lives
*The difference between the “family wage” and “social wage”
*The connection between longer work hours in the U.S. than in other countries (particularly forced overtime) and the lack of a Social Wage–and how this particularly holds women back
*How a Social Wage would help equalize men’s cond women’s contributions to family work
