Is womanhood in 2007 harder than ever? Momprenuers, telecommuters and stay-at-home dads have changed the meaning of motherhood and the opportunities that women can pursue. Yet mothers often still do the lion’s share of child rearing and have to contend with wage inequalities, childcare costs and mixed messages from popular culture. Is it really career versus motherhood? Motherhood and career versus sanity? How do women today weigh the burdens and benefits? Our panelists will explore the personal, political and social implications of being a mother and offer differing perspectives on this real-life decision.
