The Rotman Institute of Philosophy presents: Happiness and Well-Being Library Lecture Series

This talk takes up five questions about women and well-being: Are women’s lives sufficiently different than men’s as to merit a separate account of well-being? What might a feminist theory of well-being look like? In general, do women lead better or worse lives than men? If women are happy with their lives, in unjust circumstances, does that count against subjective theories of well-being? How does equality relate to well-being in the context of the pay gap and the play gap?
