In this time of a broken job market, dramatic gaps between the rich and the poor and the dominance of Wall Street, we need a new paradigm for assessing the value of our “work”. Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom Presents Riane Eisler, Inspirational Author of “The Chalice & the Blade”, “Sacred Pleasure”, “Power of Partnership”, and “The Real Wealth of Nations”, to speak on: Toward a Caring Economy Beyond Capitalism and Socialism, Economics as if women, men, children, and the environment actually matter.

Reverend Deborah Johnson of Inner Light Ministries will welcome Riane Eisler, President of the Center for Partnership Studies and founder of the Caring Economy Campaign. Dr. Eisler will show that behind our most pressing individual and social problems lies the failure of economic models and policies to value and support the essential work of caring and caregiving. Recognizing the powerful influence of our hidden system of gendered values, she proposes a new paradigm for a sustainable and equitable alternative to how our economy is structured.
