Workplace Restructuring to Accommodate Family Life: Foreword
7 Pages Posted: 4 Apr 2008
This foreword to the symposium edition of the University of St. Thomas Law Journal's March 2007 conference on "Workplace Restructuring to Accommodate Family Life" summarizes the contributions of the authors and places them in the context of the overall symposium agenda. The symposium explores both some convergences and some tensions among arguments being made by secular feminists and by scholars writing from Catholic and other faith traditions on issues of feminism, family and workplace restructuring. The issue of workplace restructuring is analyzed from the perspectives of diverse disciplines by legal scholars Joan Williams, Susan Stabile, Marie Failinger, Michael Scaperlanda, Kirsten Davis, Michael Selmi, and Kathleen Baker; by philosophers Sr. Prudence Allen and Eva Feder Kittay; by economist Gregory Acs; and by historian and social critic Allan Carlson.
