When people have children their lives change profoundly. Professor Tina Miller’s work seeks to shine a light on how these changes still play out along gendered lines and what can be done to support more equality around family and caring responsibilities.
At its heart, her long-term research challenges the idea that caring responsibilities are essentially female and looks at the forces underlying this view. Her findings have transformed public policy on a number of levels. They have also changed public perceptions of gender equality, and how caring and paid work is organised.
