Please join us for the first meeting this academic year of the Seminar on the State and Capitalism since 1800.
** Please note: Those planning to attend events in this series should read the paper that will be posted on the CES website before the seminar.**
Women have made great strides towards equality with men in recent decades, but they keep being underrepresented in both politics and management. “The Ties that Double Bind” shows how preferences in the US electorate for candidates with traditional family ties put women at a disadvantage, even without any overt discrimination. The shorter companion piece explores related issues in the case of women competing for executive positions, in comparative perspective.
Please note: This seminar includes two papers both of which are attached.
