The Editors of the National Tax Journal (NTJ) are excited to continue our webinar series that periodically features some of the NTJ’s recently published articles.

The Gender and Public Policy webinar will comprise four papers from the Forum of the September 2023 issue. Despite decades of progress, the path to gender equality in the U.S. remains long. The gender wage gap persists across the entire workforce, and women spend more time on average on unpaid household work and caretaking. There are also clear gender gaps in a wide array of economic, educational, and health outcomes. Recently, it has become increasingly recognized that public policies that are applied uniformly can mitigate or exacerbate these existing gender inequalities because of the different economic circumstances and family structures experienced by women and those in the LGBTQ+ community. The papers in this Forum explore several issues in gender and public policy.

Please join us as Sara LaLumia (Williams College) moderates a discussion with Shanthi Ramnath (Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago), Elliott Isaac (Tulane), Olga Malkova (University of Kentucky), and Amy Matsui (National Women’s Law Center) on some key ways in which policies intersects with issues of gender disparities.

The webinar is co-sponsored by the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.
