This work asks why women's progress towards equality remains slow. Neither male conspiracies nor women's psychology is at fault, but social structures which fail to accommodate peole who both need to earn a living and who are obliged to care for their families underlie persistent inequalities. Many women do succeed in combining motherhood with career success, but they do so by escaping set patterns both at work and in the home. This book charts the odds against them and their methods of triumph. Terri Apter is the author of "Altered Loves: Mothers and Daughters during Adolescence".
