Joan Williams, Distinguished Professor of Law, Founder/Director, Center for WorkLife Law, University of California-Hastings; Author, Reshaping the Work-Family Debate: Why Men and Class Matter

In conversation with Mary Cranston, Firm Senior Partner and Immediate Past Chair, Pillsbury

Called “something of a rock star” by The New York Times, Williams contends that Republicans win working-class votes by adeptly tapping class resentments. With vivid descriptions of the class structure of coffee, how child-rearing differs by class, and how the “culture wars” reflect class conflict, Williams makes the case that Democrats can bridge the “class culture gap” and attain a new Democratic majority.
