Her most recent book (with Caryl Rivers), entitled The Truth about Girls and Boys: Challenging Toxic Stereotypes about Our Children was published by Columbia University Press in 2011. She and Caryl Rivers are working on a new book entitled, The New Soft War on Women... Her articles have appeared in numerous academic journals and in general publications (The New York Times Sunday Magazine, the Washington Post, Newsday, the Boston Globe, McCall’s, Self, Working Woman, and the Daily Beas). Roz is the recipient of several national awards, including the American Personnel and Guidance Association’s Annual Award for Outstanding Research, the Radcliffe College Graduate Society’s Distinguished Achievement Medal and Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government’s 1999 Goldsmith Research Award, and the Harvard University Graduate School’s Ann Rowe award for outstanding contribution to women’s education.
I will be working on a new book with my long-term writing colleague, Caryl Rivers. The working title of the book is, The New Soft War on Women. In the book, we describe hidden obstacles that women confront at work and beyond; obstacles that prevent them from realizing the legitimate gains from their education and hard work.
