Why did so many victories for the American women’s movement occur during a few years in the 1960s and 1970s? What lessons can we draw from that era in US history today? Claudia Goldin, Professor of Economics at Harvard University and awarded the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2023, explains.
