The U.S. made a great deal of progress toward gender equality from the 1970s until the 1990s, but in many ways, the movement has stalled since then, writes Philip Cohen, a sociology professor at the University of Maryland. Policy changes designed to allow people to integrate work and family life could help address this problem, he adds. "Someday we may come to see paid family leave, reduced work hours, and public child care as part of our natural suite of rights," he writes. "And with them, gender equality may not be as far behind as it looks today."
