Conference ‘Changing Gender Inequalities, Changing Families?’

The conference ‘Changing Gender Inequalities, Changing Families?’ was the closing event of the GENDERBALL project. It took place on 7–8 December 2017 in Leuven and was attended by about 50 participants from Europe and North America

The goal of the conference was to take stock of how changes in some of the traditional social inequalities between men and women over the last decades have affected family behavior. Examples of questions that have been addressed are: How have increases in the educational attainment of women relative to that of men affected patterns of family formation and divorce? How does women’s increasing attachment to the labor market affect their position on the marriage market and their roles in their families? The program can be obtained here.
