Caitlyn Collins

Caitlyn Collins, author of Making Motherhood Work: How Women Manage Careers and Caregiving, is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Washington University in St. Louis. She specializes in the study of gender inequality. Collins asks, how and why do women continue to face disadvantages at work and in family life? Through her cross-national research, she wants to change the conversation about how we support women and their families—a shift that calls for nothing less than a revolution in our cultural attitudes and social policies. Collins has lectured across the U.S. and internationally on her research, and is a contributor to The New York Times, Slate, and The Atlantic. She earned her PhD from the University of Texas at Austin. Her work is supported by the National Science Foundation, Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation, and American Association of University Women. She has published in top peer-reviewed academic journals and edited volumes, and her work is featured in outlets such as Al Jazeera, The Atlantic, Forbes, The Guardian, Harvard Business Review, National Public Radio, The New York Times, Politico, The Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
