This talk reviews the opportunities this offers for research, both in collecting new data but especially in redesigning the job search process, for example through better information integration. It highlights some of the insights that have been obtained so far, and discusses the many open paths for future work.

The lecture will analyse how women’s employment outside the home evolves with changes in the organization of production and structural transformation. We document differences in social status associated with work and discuss implications for labor market interventions. Silvana Tenreyro will be presented with her 2022 Birgit Grodal Award before the Presidential Address This lecture provides evidence on women’s work through the process of development using the Jobs of the World data, a publicly available resource that harmonises Census and DHS data to build jobs statistics from individual records.

Marshall Lecture Michèle Tertilt Keynote Address 25/08 17:45 CEST 75 mins Favourite Add to Calendar 2022-08-25 17:45:00 2022-08-25 19:00:00 EEA-ESEM 2022: Marshall Lecture The lecture discusses the evolution of women's rights from an economic perspective.Throughout US history, women gained legal rights in essentially four phases: basic property rights were extended in the late 19th century, political rights such as suffrage in the early 20th century, followed by equal rights in the labor market in the mid- and late 20th century, while the extension of property rights over a women's own body is still ongoing. The lecture discusses the economic and cultural forces behind these legal changes and asks whether the same forces can account for variation in women’s rights across countries today. To do so, recent changes in legal rights are analyzed using cross-country data between 1970 and 2020. Many of the driving forces that were relevant historically in the United States, are equally important to understanding the cross-country variation in the legal position of women today. However, other factors come into play as well such as international pressure, scientific progress and religion.
