3 pm
Conron Hall, University College 3110

Paula England examines trends in a number of key indicators of gender inequality — including employment, earnings, and segregation of fields of study. She considers which aspects of gender inequality have changed more and which are more resistant to change. She also points out the asymmetry of change in gender — with more change in women’s than men’s roles.

Paula England is Professor of Sociology, Silver Professor of Arts and Science, Director of Graduate Studies, New York University England has received the Jessie Bernard Award for Distinguished Scholarship on Gender, and a Distinguished Career Award from the American Sociological Association. In 2015 the Population Association of America awarded her the Harriet Presser award for research on gender and demography. In 2018, England was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.
