But it goes well beyond these (important) themes to explore how both women and men need to think differently about their careers and families going forward... in part because the "traditional workplace" is becoming as outdated as the typewriter, and in part because our priorities have started to get seriously out of whack. Millennials are starting to want something different and, with the advent of technology that can transform the work-place, they have a tremendous opportunity to achieve it.
Along the way, some seriously interesting topics get explored. How young women need a different career path approach in an era where life expectancies are headed north of 100. How spouses/partners need a plan to make it all work, even though life will inevitably get in the way. How men who take the lead parenting plunge are likely to run up against (and need to prevail against) outdated cultural biases. How the language we use is incredibly important to achieving gender equality in the workplace. How big business has no incentive to change traditional work formats... until flexible models start winning the war for talent. How workplace solutions need to be across the socio-economic spectrum. And how society as a whole needs to "revalue caregiving".
Does Slaughter have all the answers? No, but she does have some great ideas, from disruptive technologies to legislative priorities to personal approaches. The point is to get the dialogue started. And having now given the book to my two daughters, it has in my house...
I have not personally read the book but like the message from it in the Atlantic Review and agree the topic is majorly important and vital beginning now.
I was a stay at home Mom as I raised my children and I am now a caretaker of their Grandmom. She is a few weeks away from 96 years old.
During her younger era of care taking, a stigma did not seem to be attached to the women at home. It was common. There was one however, once the children were raised and a middle aged woman having given up work outside the home, tried to get employment. It was heartbreaking for me to see as a young woman with an older Mom trying to "become viable."
When she had always been viable.
Sadly, I have faced that as well. Generations later along with many others.
For too many years, caregivers have had to master a silence at judgements toward them.
It is time voices do become heard and value put on people that do make their loved ones a priority through birth, health, sickness and death. No matter your gender.
