Caitlyn Collins

Assistant Professor, Sociology

Caitlyn Collins studies gender inequality in the workplace and family life. She examines how culture and policy intersect to both reduce and reproduce inequality. Most of her work to date uses cross-national, qualitative methods to investigate working mothers’ experiences across western industrialized countries. Recently, she is engaged in collaborative, quantitative research to probe how the COVID-19 pandemic shapes mothers’ employment and widens inequalities of gender, race, and social class.
