Nomination: Reshaping the Work-Family Debate

Williams, Joan. Reshaping the Work-Family Debate. 2010. 304p. Harvard University Press, $29.95 (978-0-6740-5567-4). Gr.10-12.
Williams analyzes gender and government policy in this study of the work and family intersection. She debunks the notion popular in the media that wealthy, well-educated women “opt out,” pointing out flaws in work place culture and policies that preclude viable choices. A successful combination of policy critique and anecdotes, this book inspires new ways to think about issues that affect all of society.[jw]
