Global press for our article on sexual orientation and labor market outcomes
The Daily Telegraph’s Lauren Davidson wrote a feature which was published online, with references to the article, and an interview with the author. This was followed by an opinion piece by The Daily Telegraph’s Patrick McAleenan, who wrote about the article’s relation to “sexuality stereotyping” and cultural assumptions about gender.
Meanwhile, our international reach spanned English language publications in Malaysia and Cyprus.
Alongside these fantastic write-ups, the article provoked some interesting comment on social media. Both Lauren Davidson and Patrick McAleenan from The Daily Telegraph tweeted alerts to their articles, and The Washington Post’s Lydia DePillis posted a link to our article itself.
The response so far shows how relevant IZA World of Labor research is to the general public and policymakers alike. We need this kind of debate and commentary to ensure that effective policies and regulations can be developed.
