Publisher Comments:

Does changing a toddler's diapers count as a fulfilling job? Is the glass ceiling that keeps women from advancing in their careers actually located in the home? In Get to Work, a book that instantly ignited a firestorm of debate, Hirshman cogently argues that opting out of the workplace is a form of self-betrayal. Combining a hard-hitting critique of traditional feminism with practical advice to help stay-at-home moms find satisfying, well-paying work, this book will be as era-defining as The Feminine Mystique.

Review:

"[W]ill provoke invigorating discussion for sure..." The Seattle Times

Review:

"One of the most outspoken voices in the...women's movement...sifts through the confusing spectrum of arguments over women's roles with a clarity and conviction harking back to Betty Friedan." Los Angeles Times Book Review

Synopsis:
