Brightest Minds: Dr. Isabel Sawhill on Creating a New Ethic of Responsible Parenthood

9:30am to 11:30am
Location Title: 
PNC

More than 40 percent of new mothers are unmarried. Sixty percent of these births are unplanned, as women, in the words of Dr. Isabel Sawhill, “drift” into motherhood. Since the 1970s, this rise in unwed and unplanned motherhood has resulted in an increase in child poverty. Join us as Dr. Sawhill explores these societal trends and their impact on child poverty and wellness, and explains how the social sector can effectively support efforts for change.
