IAS/SIR Speaker Series: Making Motherhood Work, How Women Manage Careers and Caregiving
Join us as Professor Caitlyn Collins discusses her newly published book.
Taken from her website: I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. My research examines the production and consequences of social inequality. I use qualitative methods to understand gender inequality in the workplace and in family life.
My current project is a cross-national interview study of 135 working mothers in Sweden, Germany, Italy, and the United States. These four countries offer distinct policy approaches to reconciling the work-family conflict. I examine how different ideals of gender, motherhood, and employment are embedded in these policies, and how they shape the daily lives of working mothers in these countries.
