The Equality Trap: Why Women Are in Trouble at Home and at Work

Overview

Mason (law and social welfare, U. of California, Berkeley) provides a new introduction to a work that, when it was first published in 1988, was seen by many feminists as a betrayal of the labor that had gone into gaining equal rights for all women.

Overview

Mason (law and social welfare, U. of California, Berkeley) provides a new introduction to a work that, when it was first published in 1988, was seen by many feminists as a betrayal of the labor that had gone into gaining equal rights for all women. A decade later, with single mothers making up fully a third of the American women having babies, she argues that it is more important than ever to put the needs of children first—whether they are the children of poor women on workfare or wealthy women who are CEOs—by providing extra support for parents who work and freeing women from the rigid rhetoric of strict equality.
