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?

New Gender Stat Installment

"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.

New 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.

New Initiative: Gender and Precarity

We are excited to announce our new multipart initiative focused on exploring precarity through the prism of gender. Generously funded by the Ford Foundation and launched during our 2014 conference, this two-year project will address the combined impact of gender discrimination experienced via occupational segregation, workplace practices, sexual violence, immigration and housing.

New Literature Review: Multigenerational Workforce

An annotated collection of recent research on multiple generations sharing the workforce captures debates among scholars including whether comparing and contrasting workplace generations yields meaningful information about people and work.
