Law up until the 20th century severely limited women's ability to own land, devise and enforce contracts, and even appear in court as independent persons. What were the conditions that led to the support of women's rights in the United States? On a broader scale, what does it mean to think of a problem like women's rights with an economic or political economy lens? Jayme Lemke discusses on this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast.
