Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“With keen insight and passion, Gornick and Meyers show why and how ‘dual-earner/dual-caregiver’ arrangements are essential for the well-being of post-industrial societies ... A wonderful book that is must-reading for experts, policymakers, and caring citizens alike.”—Kathleen Gerson

“An extremely stimulating and provocative debate.”—Jane Lewis

“While sharing a common goal of greater equality among men and women, the authors critically discuss whether gender symmetry should be a goal in itself, for whom, and at what costs in terms of social inequalities ... This intense and honest dialogue makes for an exciting book.”—Chiara Saraceno
