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. 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). For more detailed information about this issue, please click here. Prospective contributors should submit a CV and an abstract of their study along with up to two pages of supporting material no later than 5 PM EST on August 7, 2014, to: https://rsfjournal.onlineapplicationportal.com . . . Each paper will receive an honorarium when the issue is published. All questions should be directed to Suzanne Nichols, Director of Publications, at email@example.com and not to the email addresses of the editors of the special issue. Selected papers will receive notification by mid- September 2014. A meeting of the authors of invited papers will be held on January 9, 2015 at the RSF headquarters in New York City, and a draft of the full papers will be due in the late spring of 2015.
