The First Political Order: Sex, Governance, and National Security

Join UCCD in welcoming Dr. Valerie Hudson as November's guest speaker. Hudson makes the argument that the first political order is the sexual-political order established between men and women in every society. The character of that order is deeply political and has cascading effects for a nation’s horizon of stability, security, and prosperity. With the assistance of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Minerva Initiative, Hudson has undertaken a massive empirical probe of that argument and will present the highlights of the research at this lecture.
