Working Mothers and Work Life Balance: Deborah Kahn calls the AMp
27 plays

Can mothers have it all? Author Deborah Kahn called The Morning AMp this Feminist Wednesday to talk about finding a work life balance for working mothers. Take a listen to see what data-driven conclusion she came to in her book The Roads Taken: Complex Lives of Employed and At-Home Mothers

“I looked at my life and I was happy with my marriage and my children and socially… but professionally I was not happy with my life. I never felt that even though that I had worked before in professional jobs and had done the PTA and various other things. I never had really used my mind and challenged myself and done something. This is why doing this research, writing this book and finishing it up was so important to me.”
