Leaving Women Behind: Modern Families, Outdated Laws
he single most important economic and sociological change in our society in the past 60 years has been the entry of women into the labor market. Our public policy institutions have not kept apace. Tax law, labor law, and a host of other institutions are still designed to favor women who remain in the home and are often unfair to married women who enter the labor market. Many changes in tax law, employee benefits, and retirement policy are needed to bring aging institutions in sync with the way people live in the 21st century. Just before Mother’s Day, join us for a discussion of women living and working in a 21st-century economy with 20th-century laws and policies.
