With Anne-Marie Slaughter and Simon Critchley
In conjunction with A Doll’s House
Anne-Marie Slaughter, author of the 2012 Atlantic cover story “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” joins philosopher Simon Critchley to discuss the complex and evolving nature of women’s role in society. Using Ibsen’s protagonist in A Doll’s House as a jumping-off point, Slaughter and Critchley explore the longstanding debate harkening back to Plato’s Republic and the discussion of female equality, family, and the balance of public and private life in Slaughter’s article.
