Episode Summary

EDIT
Women's Journey Toward Equality
AIRED:
Harvard Graduate School of Education Dean Kathleen McCartney presents Rosalind Chait Barnett, director of the Community, Families, and Work Program at Brandeis University with the 2008 Anne Roe Award. The biennial award was established in 1979 to honor Anne Roe, the first woman tenured at Harvard in 1963, and also a leading researcher on career development and women.Barnett receives the award and gives a lecture on how traditional gender roles are relaxing, subsequently freeing women to engage more fully in life outside the home. She also discusses men's family and work roles, women's multiple roles, quality of marital relationships, and what the future holds for women's equality.Barnett's work and research has significantly contributed to women's professional growth and the field of education. She has published numerous articles and seven books including the Same Difference: How Gender Myths Are Hurting Our Relationships, Our Children, and Our Jobs, written with Caryl Rivers. Barnett is currently collaborating with the Harvard School of Public Health, Catalyst, and Work/Family Directions on various research projects.moreless
