This review is from: The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much? (Paperback)
A very well-researched book giving data and testimonials against economic dependency to men. It basically demonstrates that giving up work long-term and being dependent on a husband for support is far too risky an endeavour for women -- divorce, illness, death all have huge repercussions on women's lives. The stories are harrowing and depressing -- nothing as crappy as poverty in old age!
Message of the book is that having kids and working can be managed and is better for women's long-term prospects! Surprised the book wasn't more popular but I suppose a lot of women want to put their head in the sand!
