2003 Analytic Timeline of the Work-Family Area of Study
By Christina Matz and Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes

In conjunction with the February 2003 academic conference "From 9-5 to 24/7: How Workplace Changes Impact Families, Work, and Communities" (sponsored by the Business and Professional Women's Foundation and the Community, Families & Work Program at Brandeis), the Sloan Work and Family Research Network developed an analytic timeline of the work-family literature from 1960 to 2002.

The 2003 timeline focuses on some of the key publications and "influencers" (both people and ideas) that have marked the growth and development of the work-family area of research, policy, and practice through different analytical lenses/perspectives.

2002 Work and Family Research Timeline — "A Living Resource"
By Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes

In 2002, the Project Team of the Sloan Network constructed the 2002 Work and Family Timeline. This timeline examined the evolution of the work-family area of study by identifying some of the individuals and publications that have helped to shape key work-family constructs and contributed to the work-family knowledge base. The timeline was on display at the Feb. 7-9, 2002, academic conference, "Persons, Processes and Places: Research on Families, Workplaces and Communities."

Looking Backwards to Go Forward: A Timeline of the Work-Family Field in the United States Since World War II
By Bettye H. Pruitt and Rhona Rapoport

This timeline was created as a component of the project, "Looking Backwards to Go Forward," led by Rhona Rapoport and funded by the Ford Foundation. It is an excellent resource that highlights both research and advocacy on issues related to the intersection of work and family as well as issues of equity. The timeline maps the evolution of the work-family field from 1944 to 2002. The authors looked at:

  1. The Cultural Context: Popular publications on work-family issues, women in the workplace, and gender roles; demographics, politics, and economics;
  2. The Work-Family Field: Research and advocacy on work-family issues, women in the workplace, gender roles; and
  3. Impacts: Legislation and workplace changes.

A book has been written on the project. The Myth of Work-Life Balance: The Challenge of Our Time for Men, Women and Society, by Richenda Gambles, Suzan Lewis & Rhona Rapoport.
