Ann Orloff

Northwestern University

Ann Orloff, Professor of Sociology at Northwestern University, will write a book examining the relationship between the welfare reform movement and changing beliefs about the role of women in families and the economy. She will examine the ways in which American public policy shows little regard for full-time caregivers and the consequences of the contemporary “employment for all” attitude on women’s welfare.
