Speaker Bio

Francine Deutsch is an Emerita Professor of Psychology at Mount Holyoke College. She received her BA from Carnegie-Mellon University and her  Ph.D. in social psychology from Columbia University. Her research focuses on the gendered division of domestic labor. Deutsch’s book, Halving it all: How Equally Shared Parenting Works (Harvard University Press, 1999) explored how couples re-invented parenting by sharing it equally. She also co-edited the recently published book, Creating Equality at Home: How 25 Couples Around the World Share Housework and Childcare (Cambridge University Press, 2020), based on a global project that studied couples who equally share family work. As part of her administrative work as a tenured professor, over the past 20 years Professor Deutsch has worked actively to recruit academics of color to fill tenure-track positions in the psychology department and has devised a method that has been quite successful.
