CFP: The Changing Roles and Status of Women and Effects on Society and the Economy

CALL FOR ARTICLES

RSF: THE RUSSELL SAGE FOUNDATION JOURNAL OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES

Issue and Conference on “The Changing Roles and Status of
Women and Effects on Society and the Economy”

The remarkable gains in educational achievement and advances in the economic and social standing of women have been distinguishing features of the 20th and early 21st centuries. RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences invites paper submissions for its upcoming special issue on the changing roles and status of women and the effects on society and the economy. The special issue will consider both the determinants of these important economic and social changes as well as their consequences. These papers will be organized into three sections. The first section will examine changes in women’s labor market outcomes including education, experience, occupations, and pay. The second section will address family and intimate relationships. The third section will address issues in politics, law, and culture.

The journal issue is being edited by Martha Bailey (Department of Economics, University of Michigan) and Thomas A. DiPrete (Department of Sociology, Columbia University).
