Within the extensive and variegated research on welfare states and gender, the diversity among women is not commonly highlighted. In this lecture, Dr. Mandel will draw from the literature on welfare state policies, gender, and class in order to stress the importance of class distinction for understanding how welfare state policies affect the life chances of women.

Dr. Hadas Mandel is a senior lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Tel Aviv University and heads the Pollak Program for Excellence for doctoral students in the social sciences at Tel Aviv University. Her research focuses on cross-country variations in gender inequality, their relationship to class inequality, and the role of the welfare state. She also studies the motherhood penalty within a cross-country comparative perspective and the role of gender in wage inequality between occupations. Selected publications on these topics have appeared in the American Journal of Sociology, American Sociological Review, Social Forces, European Sociological Review, Social Politics, and the British Journal of Sociology.
