Is it Important to Live in a Democracy?

It is important to live in a democracy. It is important because all citizens get a say not just citizens with money or power, democracy, when paired with another type of government, as a better success rate, and democracy allows trade and international relationships to occur more freely.What is democracy?

Global Ethics Weekly: Human Rights on the Ground, with Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox

Quinnipiac's Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox discusses her work researching the conception of human rights in a community in rural India. She tells the story of Chaya Kakade, a woman who went on a hunger strike after the Indian government proposed a tax on sanitary napkins, and has since built her own production center in Latur. How does Kakade understand human rights? How can Westerners move beyond a legalistic view of the concept?
