Career and Family: women’s century-long journey toward equity
Thursday 25 November, 6:00pm-7:00pm
Public Online Event
Claudia Goldin is the Henry Lee Professor of Economics at Harvard University and former President of the American Economic Association. Her 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.
Join us for a conversation including Claudia Goldin, our own Professor Jane Humphries, and others on the themes of gender equity and couple equity.
