Career and Family: women's century-long journey toward equity
Join us for this event that will take the form of an open conversation to discuss the themes of gender equity and couple equity as presented in Claudia Goldin’s book, Career and Family: Women’s Century-Long Journey toward Equity.

Goldin's new book traces how generations of women have responded to the problem of balancing career and family as the twentieth century experienced a sea change in gender equality, revealing why true equity for dual career couples remains frustratingly out of reach. Drawing on decades of her own groundbreaking research, Goldin provides a fresh, in-depth look at the diverse experiences of college-educated women from the 1900s to today, examining the aspirations they formed—and the barriers they faced—in terms of career, job, marriage, and children; how the era of COVID-19 has severely hindered women’s advancement, yet how the growth of remote and flexible work may be the pandemic’s silver lining. Career and Family explains why we must make fundamental changes to the way we work and how we value caregiving if we are ever to achieve gender equality and couple equity.

Hosted by the Department of Social Policy and the Department of Economic History.

Attendance at an event will be shared with other parts of the School.
