With the help of the renowned New Zealand feminist, former Member of Parliament, and author — Marilyn Waring, today on Democracy Now! we’ll take a special look at how global economics and politics effects women. In a new video released this past year called Who’s Counting: Sex, Lies and Global Economics, Marilyn Waring challenges the myths of economics, its elitist stance, and our tacit compliance with political agendas that masquerade as objective economic policy.

When Marilyn Waring was elected to the New Zealand parliament in 1975, she thought she might one day return to her first love, classical music. Instead, the 22-year-old MP was re-elected three times and blazed a trail that eventually brought down her own government and launched her as the foremost spokesperson for global feminist economics. Today on Democracy Now, Marilyn Waring, in her video Who’s Counting, takes us on a journey around the world to examine the effect of global economics and military spending on the lives of women.
