Nell Peel Wolfe Lecture
Rose Hackman
Journalist and Author of Emotional Labor: The Invisible Work Shaping Our Lives and How to Claim Our Power

Hackman is a British journalist based in Detroit whose work on gender, race, labor, policing, housing, and the environment in The Guardian has brought international attention to overlooked American injustices and policy issues. In Emotional Labor, she explores this often invisible work so essential to our society and economy, sharing the stories of hundreds of women, tracing the history of emotional labor, and offering readers ways to forge new pathways for change. In a starred review, Library Journal says, “This is an inspiring, infuriating study of the toll it takes on people when they’re expected to smile, while taking on more and exhausting responsibilities without getting paid more.”
