The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision


Location: Catholic Information Center, Washington, D.C.

Bachiochi Book Talk

Join Ryan Anderson (EPPC), Mary Eberstadt (CIC Panula Chair), and Ashley McGuire (Catholic Association) for a conversation with author Erika Bachiochi on the themes of her forthcoming book, The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision.

The Rights of Women, the newest release in the de Nicola Center's "Catholic Ideas for a Secular World" book series with University of Notre Dame Press, offers an original look at the development of feminism in the United States and proposes a philosophical and legal framework for rights grounded in our responsibilities. Have the gains achieved by modern feminists in the political and economic spheres relied on a too-narrow idea of liberty and equality, at the expense of a richer understanding of the natural duties that we owe to one another? If so, what are the costs of this, and can the proper foundation of equal rights be reclaimed?
