Gender and Public PolicyUp one level
If women really mattered, how would we change public policy? One of the most important goals of the Longview Institute is reframe, rethink and reconsider how health care, child care, the minimum wage, low-wage retail employment, affordable housing, public health—even foreign policy—would be reconfigured and rethought if women really mattered. If we seriously examine public policy through the eyes of women, it would look very, very different. As was true during the 1970s, we would ask fundamentally different questions and discover quite different solutions. That is what is necessary to improve the lives of all women in the 21st century.
