Frances Rosenbluth, Damon Wells Professor of Political Science at Yale University, on "Time is Money: Why Women Make Less than Men"


Women around the world earn lower salaries than men, even while women are outpacing men in education. Inter-country and within-country variation seems to point the finger at statistical discrimination: firms’ expectations that women are more likely than men to interrupt their careers for family work. Until family roles change, employers will continue to view men as better investments in human capital.

Frances Rosenbluth is a comparative political economist with research interests in war and constitutions, Japanese politics and political economy, and the political economy of gender. She has received research support from the Fulbright Commission, the National Science Foundation, the Council on Foreign Affairs, the Abe Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation. Her books include Women, Work, and Politics (with Torben Iversen, Yale University Press, 2010), Japan Transformed: Political Change and Economic Reform (with Michael Thies, Princeton University Press, 2010), War and State Building in Medieval Japan (co-edited with John Ferejohn, Stanford University Press, 2010), and Tug of War (with John Ferejohn, forthcoming from Norton). She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
