Eastern Sociological Society (ESS) Annual Meeting
March 14-17, 2019 Boston, MA
This paper session, titled “Gender and Work,” invites theoretical and/or empirical research that explores gender gaps in work outcomes and/or gender inequality in the workplace. We are mainly interested in papers exploring the centrality of work to the reproduction of gendered inequalities. Papers that draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives and workplace contexts to explore these themes are especially welcome. Likewise, we welcome papers with policy implications on how to improve the workplace environment from a gender perspective, and its influences on other non-work domains (such as family).
