"This pathbreaking book deserves a place on every working parent's shelf--and active reading by the corporate managers who employ them.

This is more than a handbook; it is a guide to the enlightened workplace of the future, one that puts people and families first." --Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School, author of When Giants Learn to Dance and Men and Women of the Corporation

"There is a lot of discussion today about 'family values,' but Ellen Bravo's book is a practical guide to advancing them in the midst of the real world of work." --The Reverend Jesse Jackson, founder and president, National Rainbow Coalition

"Ellen Bravo continues to fight for our right to happily have a family and employment. She clearly and simply maps out solutions which will assist any traveler lost on the road to managing work and family conflicts." --Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder (D-CO), sponsor of the Family and Medical Leave Act and author of Champion of the Great American Family

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bravo is executive director of 9to5, the National Association of Working Women, which since 1973 has devoted its efforts to helping individuals and businesses balance job and family responsibilities. The need for such an organization, and a book like this, is evident in light of today's workforce: only eight percent of American families have a father as the breadwinner and a mother at home full-time. Here the author describes pertinent federal legislation such as Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (1978), the Americans with Disabilities Act (1992), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (1993). She makes concrete suggestions for workers who believe their rights are being violated and for employers wishing to adhere to state and federal legislation. Bravo contends that the few employers who have implemented such policies benefit from improved worker morale, enhanced productivity, and lower rehiring costs. The suggestions and insights of this book will benefit social scientists, policy makers, employers, and employees alike. Well researched and well written, it belongs in your library's business or social science collection.-Alan Farber, Northern Illinois Univ., Dekalb
