Program Updates

New Primer: No Awards to the Academy for Diversity

This primer shows that lack of diversity among this year’s Academy Awards nominees is only the beginning of the gender inequality story.

Literature Review: Gender Transformative Workplace Practices

This collection of resources captures research on workplace norms and how they shape employee experience. Looking across gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, etc., the books, research papers and reports take into account historical trends, prevailing cultural norms and theoretical frameworks for understanding how to transform workplace culture.

The Perfect Present: Gift Giving and Gender Norms

This primer looks briefly at the effects gendered gifting — that is, gifting based on the idea that there are gifts "right" for "girls" and "boys" — has on children's understanding of gender and gender roles from infancy all the way into adulthood. It connects the emergence of the middle class and "nuclear" family to the ways in which women in particular participate in holiday gifting rituals. 

Gifting Gender: Your Stories

A short anthology of stories about gendered gifts.

Primer on Child Sexual Abuse

Throughout this primer, Re:Gender poses questions to prompt your thinking and ours about what it will take to fix this enduring problem. 

Gender Stat Installment: Child Sexual Abuse

The data in this Gender Stat installment includes information from major government agencies as well as analysis, studies, briefs and fact sheets from research, policy and advocacy organizations. Their information comes from national statistics and research projects of varying sizes.

Primer: Are We Ready Yet? The ERA Today

Does the current version of the ERA speak to the widest possible range of concerns? If not, what would it take to change it for the better? This short primer will share the reflections and ideas that feminist scholars, activists and advocates have offered on these kinds of questions. The piece is the first of a two-part series by Re:Gender to generate robust conversation on the issue.

Literature Review: Gender and Emerging Markets

An annotated collection of literature on emerging markets and the intersection of gender.

Primer: Independent Workers and Changing Workplace

This primer is part of Re:Gender's series on precarity — the economic insecurity that comes when work is uncertain, inconsistent and unable to offer a livable wage. 

Gender Stat Installment: Wages and Benefits

In this Gender Stat installment, Re:Gender divides wages and benefits into four broad combinations, or quadrants, to explore specific challenges and opportunities for workers in each.

What Does TV Look Like in Your America

Tonight, many of us will sit down to watch the Emmy Awards, and even more of us will jump into Emmy-related conversations on Twitter and Facebook. We could let the usual chatter take hold—her dress, his facial hair, someone’s speech—or might we bypass everyone’s accessories to explore more meaningful terrain. Say, the makeup of the TV families and communities this collective group of nominees helps to create. In other words, why not have a conversation about who we are watching on TV and why?

Gender Stat: Poverty

"Gender Stat: Poverty" helps you to put a gender lens on poverty statistics and to consider the impact of race, age, sexuality, family type and geography.

Primer: Precarious Lives: Gender Lens on Low-Wage Work

A primer that uses the framework of precarity, a concept rarely used in a U.S. context, to investigate the constraints at work—on earnings, flexibility, predictability, benefits, availability—that leave workers' lives, especially women's, perpetually unstable. An element of the organization's new precarity initiative, this primer delves into aspects of economic policy and workplace and labor market conditions as they intersect with gender, race and class.
