An economic approach to stay-at-home motherhood,
This review is from: The Feminine Mistake: Are We Giving Up Too Much? (Hardcover)
Although nobody needs to convince me of the benefits of combining work with motherhood, this book provides a very good insight into the risks associated with becoming economically dependent (divorce, lack of pension benefits, potential serious illness or death of breadwinner, etc), which unfortunately a lot of women overlook when they decide to quit their jobs to raise their families. The book will reaffirm working mothers on their decision "to keep the two fronts open" and will be an eye-opener for stay-at-home-mums.
My only criticism will be that somehow the chapters feel a bit long. You get the point within the first 2/3 pages of each chaper and then it drags on a bit giving (too many?) examples/testimonies to illustrate the point.
