Hi there,

This week Democracy Now! is bringing you live, on-the-ground coverage of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where you’ll hear the voices and analysis you won’t get anywhere else. In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $30 today. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

Claudia Goldin Wins Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for Research on Gender Gap

HeadlineOct 10, 2023

The 2023 Nobel Prize in Economics has been awarded to Claudia Goldin, a Harvard professor whose groundbreaking research widened the world’s understanding of the impacts women have had in the workforce and the causes of gender pay discrimination. Golding is the first woman to win the prize as an individual, rather than sharing it, and only the third woman ever to receive the economics Nobel. In 1989, Goldin became the first woman to be offered tenure in Harvard’s Economics Department. She spoke from Harvard after news of her win.

Claudia Goldin: “I work on long-term change in economic history, in particular the evolution of women’s economic role and where we are today, and the fact that there has been enormous change and yet there are still large differences between women and men in terms of what they do, how they’re remunerated and so on. And the question is: Why is this the case? And that’s what the work is about.”
