WGSS 66.14 Gender and Family Issues in Modern Economies

This course examines the changing economic roles of women and men in modern economies and the trade-offs faced by households. The origins and persistence of these trade-offs are analyzed through the lenses of economic models. The ultimate objective is to provide you with the tools to critically address a wide range of real-world questions related to gender and family. For instance: How have technological changes in the home and the market transformed families? In what ways are families in the US becoming increasingly stratified? What forces led married women to enter paid employment? What forces might lead them to “opt-out”? What is the rationale for paid parental leave? Why some firms offer it? Should they?
