Final study report from the Illinois General Assembly Library Study Commission to the Illinois General Assembly
This is still one of the proudest moments in my career and life. There has been a cost — a personal and professional cost — to having to navigate a work environment where working women are silenced for speaking up or face serious consequences to their career.
Nearly eighty percent of women are less likely to be hired if they have children—and are half as likely to be promoted. These examples demonstrate how others have evolved past the noise of modern life and into the solitude of productive thought and cleansing tranquility.
I would definitely recommend this book to working moms with the caveat that there is a lot of business talk, and it has a feminist and political slant to it. Those aspects, and the feminist undertones, sometimes went a bit over my head.
More fundamentally, she does not address labor and class issues seriously. Lacy makes me feel a bit better about trying to have it all and do it all. She does not mince her words when it comes to things that hold women back in the workforce while also showing why being a mom only makes you a better employee, plus I loved the title. Working mothers can't afford to sweat the small stuff.
I want to be successful in all areas of my life: as a mother, as a librarian, as a wife, sister, friend, aunt, and more. 5 if I did half stars.
These are the ones we're currently moving most.
Will this book really help to overthrow the patriarchy? Becoming like the worst sort of man is no more overthrowing the patriarchy than Meyer's refusal to have her pregnant body photographed was.
Lacy's no-nonsense writing reminded me that things need to start changing for the better.
I got this book because it had a cool title.
Yet despite this concrete proof that working mothers are a lucrative asset, they still face the "Maternal Wall"—widespread unconscious bias about their abilities, contributions, and commitment.
