Anju Mary Paul, the lead author of the paper “The Policy Impact of Women’s Political Voice:  A Comparison of 26 Countries’ Care Policies,” presented virtually in May 2022. Over the past several years, Professor Paul (Associate Professor of Sociology at Yale-NUS College) has developed the Global Care Policy Index to gauge how well countries uphold policies supporting paid and unpaid carework. Her paper for this seminar, coauthored with Jiang Haolie (Yale-NUS) and Cynthia Chen (National University of Singapore) examines whether women’s political representation affects policies supporting caregiving.  Richard Itaman (Jesus College, Cambridge) and Joya Misra (UMass Amherst) led off commentary and discussion.
