Race, Class, and Gender

Roderick T. Long, Jacob T. Levy, David Bernstein, and R. Richard Geddes give presentations on “Race, Class, and Gender” at an Institute for Humane Studies Fellows Research Colloquium in 1997.

Roderick T. Long presents “A Class Theory for Classical Liberals.” Jacob T. Levy lectures on “Individual Rights vs. Group Rights.” David Bernstein presents “The Role of Government in the Oppression of Minorities.” R. Richard Geddes lectures on “The Role of Women’s Rights.”

Topics covered include why classical liberalism needs a theory of “the ruling class,” how labor legislation historically excluded minorities from employment, and mapping the growth of women’s rights over the past 200 years.
