Leah Ruppanner (@leahruppanner) is an associate professor of sociology and co-director of The Policy Lab at the University of Melbourne. She is an expert in family, gender, public policy, cross-national research, and quantitative methods. Her current research focuses on barriers to maternal employment, female representation in government, and gender inequality in the home. 

Help from young grandparents in childcare and housework has cushioned the impact of gender inequalities for many working women. But as they age, the burden of care is likely to return for women.
