Ph.D. 1972, University of California - Berkeley
My research falls in the areas of psychology of women, human sexuality, and gender-role development.
One current research project, the Wisconsin Maternity Leave and Health Project (now called the Wisconsin
Study of Families and Work), focuses on working mothers and their children; this research has public policy
implications in the area of parental leave. Another current project, funded by the National Science Foundation,
is the Moms & Math (M&M) Project, in which we are studying mothers interacting with their 5th or 7th grade
children as they do mathematics homework together. Other research investigates the emergence of gender differences in depression in adolescence, peer sexual harrassment victimization in adolescence, and gender differences in mathematics performance.
