Professor of History Lisa Keller on Working Mothers

Professor Keller featured in Dame Magazine feature “Working Mothers are the Backbone of the U.S. Economy.”

“One of the great, great fallacies in Western civilization is that women have come into the workforce in the last 50 years,” says Keller, a women’s history professor at Purchase College. “Women have always worked, and they have always done critical jobs in sharing the work with men, supporting the household and supporting the family’s income.”
