Demography Brown Bag: Structural Sexism and Life Expectancy in the U.S.

The Center for Demography and Population Health presents a talk by Assistant Professor of Sociology Patricia Homan, a faculty affiliate of the Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy.

Homan will delve deeper into her recent award-winning research in which she developed a new structural sexism approach to the study of gender inequality and health. Her approach goes beyond sexist mistreatment by individuals to examine how the degree of systematic gender inequality in power and resources — i.e., structural sexism — in a society can impact people’s health. Read more on that research at this link.

Homan's research won the 2019 Roberta G. Simmons Outstanding Dissertation in Medical Sociology from the American Sociological Association section on Medical Sociology. It was published in the  American Sociological Review.
