Aida Villanueva is a sociologist who studies the intersection of gender inequality, family labor, and women’s employment in Latin America and the United States. In her research, Villanueva takes a cross-national, comparative approach to explore women’s work and the reproduction of gendered disadvantage in labor markets. Her portfolio could be organized under three branches: (1) family labor, (2) precarious employment, and (3) household structure.
