Maternal Wall by Monica Biernat
Book DescriptionOver the past four or five decades, the feminist revolution has brought a lot of changes. There is a lot of evidence that the glass ceiling is being shattered. For one particular group, however, gender equity remains elusive. That group is working mothers. The problem of the 'glass ceiling' has now turned into a related, from different problem: 'the maternal wall'. In the first "Journal of Social Issues" ("JSI") to deal specifically with the topic of working mothers, scholars from several disciplines discuss a variety of aspects of the problem of the maternal wall.
