Women have achieved parity in obtaining doctoral degrees, but do not experience the same career trajectory as men. Is this discrmination or family formation? Based on twelve years of research we can now accurately address the question of the effect of family formation from the graduate student years though retirement.
Mary Ann Mason is currently professor and co-director of the Earl Warren Institution for Law and Social Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. Her forthcoming book (2013) is titled: Do Babies Matter? Gender and Family in the Ivory Tower. From 2000 to 2007, she served as the first woman dean of the Graduate Division at UC Berkeley, with responsibility for nearly 10,000 students in more than 100 graduate programs. Her research findings and advocacy have been central to ground-breaking policy initiatives, including the ten-campus "UC Faculty Family Friendly Edge" (http://ucfamilyedge.berkeley.edu/toolkit.html). and the nationwide "Nine Presidents" summit on gender equity at major research universities. Her most recent book (co-authored with her daughter Eve Mason Ekman) is Mothers on the Fast Track: How a New Generation Can Balance Family and Careers (Oxford, 2007).
