Anne Hewitt

MPhil Economic & Social History student
I’m Anne, and I’m an MPhil student studying the occupational structure of women in the U.S between 1950 and 1970. I’m particularly interested in understanding regional variation in women’s work, and the rise of working mothers during this period. I’m completing this research with Leigh Shaw-Taylor as my supervisor and within the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure. Prior to coming to Newnham College, Cambridge, I did my undergraduate degree in economic history at LSE. I’m originally from Virginia, U.S.A, where I have two dogs I always look forward to seeing when home. Outside of academia, I’m a violinist and enjoy cooking Korean food with friends.
