Working Women and the Modern Mother

I JUST read this article after posting my response to the blog3 post about the panel of professional women. One of the comments made was how it is so ingrained that women are either a professional or a mother, but can't be both. This article is about how Modern Motherhood may undermine Women. Check it out. Most of the class we focused on what has/is happening in the US, but this new book focuses on the perspectives of women in France and their reactions to American Motherhood and what that may mean to the modern woman.
