Mojo Mom on The Today Show
You asked for it--Here's the clip from my Today Show appearance with Lisa Belkin, Leslie Bennetts, and Gail Saltz.
The conversation about women's lifelong career paths continued on May 18 when Lisa Belkin returned to talk with Sylvia Ann Hewlett to discuss "Women and the Glass Ceiling." Hewlett has a new book out, Off-Ramps and On-Ramps: Keeping Talented Women on the Road to Success. I'll dive in to that next week.
This week I am still immersed in Pamela Stone's research into the lives of opt-out mothers. Stone presents these women's voices and her own analytical insights in her book Opting Out? Her results are more nuanced than the "did we jump or were we pushed out?" soundbites you'll hear so often, even used to summarize her book. I had many a-ha moments in reading Opting Out? and Stone's findings have persuaded me to view the tradeoffs of being a stay-at-home Mom in a new light. Pamela Stone will join me later this week on the May 25 episode of The Mojo Mom Podcast, so be sure to listen in on our conversation.
