Joan C. Williams and her new book: "Reshaping the Work-Family Debate: Why Men and Class Matter"


Professor Joan C. Williams, Distinguished Professor of Law, Founder/Director,Center for WorkLife Law University of California, Hastings College of the Law will discuss her new book "Reshaping the Work-Family Debate: Why Men and Class Matter". Work-family conflict remains a central fact of American life: Americans report much higher levels than exist elsewhere, and men now report more work-family conflict than women. Corporate workplace flexibility policies are widely touted but little used, and the U.S. has the most family-hostile public policy in the developed world. Williams argues that jump-starting the stalled revolution in work and family roles requires adding men and class to the discussion.
