About me

Marie Evertsson is Professor of Sociology in Social Policy at the Swedish Institute for Social Research (SOFI). She is affiliated with the Stockholm University Linnaeus Center on Social Policy and Family Dynamics in Europe (SPaDE).


Evertsson is the course coordinator of Makt och social skiktning (Power and Social Stratification), Sociology 1 (undergraduate level, 7,5 ECTS credits) and Gender and Gender Structures: Change and Stability in Institutions, Policies and Practices, (7,5 ECTS credits) at the advanced level.


Evertsson’s research focus on gender inequalities in the home and in the labor market. She studies the gendered division of paid and unpaid work and the degree to which family policies influence women's and men's labor market prospects. Evertsson has an ERC Consolidator Grant to study the transition to parenthood and the division of care and paid work in different-sex and same-sex couples in the Nordic countries, the Netherlands and the US. The GENPARENT project (ERC CoG #771770) started in August 2018 and initially includes two PhD students as well as international collaborators. The Swedish part of the project receives additional support via a research grant from the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte Dnr. 2014-2347).

Evertsson is the coordinator of the Transparent project; a cross-national collaboration, studying how the transition to parenthood is structured by family policies and gender ideology. The project includes Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic. Evertsson is coordinating the network together with Prof. Daniela Grunow, Goethe University of Frankfurt and the two are the editors of the volume; Couples' Transitions to Parenthood: Analysing Gender and Work in Europe (2016). A second volume is planned to be published in early 2019.
