Transforming Family Divisions of Labor289
The age of the male breadwinner and the female caregiver has passed, but gender inequality is as persistent as ever. This major new work intervenes in today's debates on domestic inequality, examining tensions between work and family life for women. "Gender Inequality" explores class disparity, who should care for infants, and fatherhood in a dual-earner family. Surveying the design of public institutions that could significantly mitigate these pressures, contributors including Nancy Folbre, Janet Gornick, and Marcia Meyers offer useful, thought-provoking prescriptions for real change.

"With keen insight and passion, Gornick and Meyers show why and how 'dual-earner/dual-caregiver' arrangements are essential for the well-being of post-industrial societies...A wonderful book that is must-reading for experts, policymakers, and caring citizens alike." Kathleen Gerson, New York University "An extremely stimulating and provocative debate."
