This team-taught course explores differences in women's and men's work in both the paid and unpaid labor force, including the household. Issues covered include differences in labor force participation, occupations, earnings, career ladders, health and safety, and technology. The major explanations offered by social scientists for the inequalities will be examined for their relevance. Strategies for change will be explored. The importance of class, ethnic/racial, and native-born versus immigrant status is fully integrated throughout the course. This course is designed to be relevant for both graduate students and upper-level undergraduates in a variety of disciplines.
