"In her thoughtful and thought-provoking book, Williams shows how the cult of domesticity limits both women and men--and how we can restructure the marketplace and the law to reintegrate work and family. Her model of reconstructive feminism promises to end the divisive gender wars between different brands of feminism, between tomboys and femmes, restructuring market work and family work."--Deborah Tannen, author of You Just Don't Understand, Talking from 9 to 5, and The Argument Culture
"The only way we Americans can see ourselves plainly in the coming debates over child care and pay equity, private need and public obligation, is with a clear and unsentimental road map. Joan Williams' Unbending Gender is it."--Ray Suarez, host of NPR's "Talk of the Nation"
"At a time when we are searching for a way to restore meaning and cohesion to family life, Joan Williams has given us all--family workers, market workers, feminists, policy makers, and courts--a beacon on that way."--Zipporah Batshaw Wiseman, University of Texas Law School
