Annabelle Hutchinson is a fifth year Ph.D. candidate in Yale’s Political Science department and a current WFF Gender and Diversity Fellow.
Hutchinson’s Seed Grant Project, “The Backlash of Male Economic Anxiety,” explores the economic downturn brought upon by Covid-19 in 2020. Hutchinson asks what happens to our society socially and politically when men lose their jobs in vast numbers. Her project investigates whether, in a country where gender norms have changed rapidly over the last century, white men exhibit a sexist backlash and a desire to revert to traditional gender norms when their economic and social power is threatened.
Hutchinson’s survey is currently in progress and her research results are forthcoming.
