Reviews

"A strongly motivated, compelling piece of research, Elisabeth Kelan challenges us to think about the ways in which the evolving economy shapes new gender inequities. Her eye popping investigation into how gender progress lags as technology expands is a must read." - Sylvia Ann Hewlett, President, Center for Work Life Policy
