Left Bank Books welcomes Washington University assistant professor of sociology Caitlyn Collins, who will sign and discuss her new book, “Making Motherhood Work: How Women Manage Careers and Caregiving,” at this official Launch Party event! Refreshments will be provided.
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Making Motherhood Work” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
Of all Western industrialized countries, the United States ranks dead last for supportive work-family policies: No federal paid parental leave. The highest gender wage gap. No minimum standard for vacation and sick days. The highest maternal and child poverty rates. Can American women look to European policies for solutions? “Making Motherhood Work” draws on interviews that sociologist Caitlyn Collins conducted over five years with 135 middle-class working mothers in Sweden, Germany, Italy, and the United States.
