HEADING HOME Motherhood, Work, and the Failed Promise of Equality

by | Read by Gabrielle Baker

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Gabrielle Baker comes across as smart, knowledgeable, and firm, three qualities essential when narrating a well-researched look at contemporary women's workplace choices. Her delivery is easy on the ears while at the same time informing listeners about the lives of the women who make up the case studies at the heart of this book. Her tone is sympathetic when delivering the cases and the first-person quotes scattered throughout the chapters. This is in contrast to the firm tone she uses when the author examines the structural inequalities that make women's options seem like non-choices. Together, Orgad and Baker help us understand the contradictions and dilemmas facing young women as they graduate, get married, and start their families.
