American Buddhism : Understanding Labor - Ep. 132

By Robert AF Thurman

Using Marilyn Waring's book The Labor of Women: Counting For Nothing as a starting point, in this podcast Professor Thurman discusses the history of Labor Day, the need for a deeper appreciation of the role of women in society and how Feminists and their supporters can support the on-going efforts begun at the Washington DC Women's March. Includes a deconstruction of the Radical Right's branding of themselves as Conservatives in the Republican Party, a call to action for a re-defining of the role of the American Vice-President & personal reflections on The Pussy Hat Project. This podcast is a part of the on-going series 'American Buddhism' exploring current events from a modern Buddhist Centralist perspective with Professor Robert AF Thurman. Special thanks to this week's podcast sponsor Sacred Stream Foundation.
