June Carbone
Women's Equality Week
In a discussion of her book Marriage Markets, the University of Minnesota’s June Carbone – a former law professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City – examines the role of our country’s growing fiscal inequality in reshaping American families. The event marks Women’ Equality Week.
The phrase “American family” once evoked the image of a breadwinning dad, homemaker mom, and their 2K kids in comfortable suburbia. No longer as divorces, single parenthood, and out-of-wedlock births rise. One largely overlooked agent of that change: our country’s growing fiscal inequality.
