What happens when a woman earns more than her male partner?


Does it impact her marriage, her career, her children, her sense of self?


A quiet revolution has moved through America in the last 30 years: Women have steadily increased their earnings until they are now out-earning their male partners in record numbers.


In 1970, 4% of married women earned more than their husbands.  Today, 40% of households with children have mothers who are the sole or primary earners.


My research focuses on how we can manage this transition as individuals, families, businesses, and society as a whole. To learn more about my specific findings, click here.


I love speaking about this topic and have spoken in academic and corporate settings including Google, ADP and Mindr.
