Paula England - Is the Gender Revolution Stalled? An update

Monday, March 23, 2020 at 4:45pm to 6:00pm

Klarman Hall, Rhodes-Rawlings Auditorium (G70)
232 East Ave, Ithaca, NY 14853

This talk, through an examination of the change in multiple indicators of gender inequality for the period of 1970 to 2018, will unpack the dramatic, historic progress toward gender equality, while also underscoring the recent slowdown in progress, which, on some indicators, has stalled entirely.

Paula England is Professor and Chair of Sociology at NYU.

Her research concerns gender inequality at work and at home. She has written on the sex gap in pay, occupational segregation, how couples divide housework, and the wage penalty for motherhood.

Her more recent work deals with changing family patterns in the US and how they differ by social class. 

Professor England was President of the American Sociological Association in 2014-2015 and was editor of the American Sociological Review in 1994-1996. In 2018, she was elected to the US National Academy of Sciences.

This lecture is the keynote address of Gender Inequality in the Workplace, the Center for the Study of Inequality’s Spring 2020 Conference
