Care and Equality : Inventing a New Family Politics - 00 edition

Care and Equality : Inventing a New Family Politics (ISBN10: 0415928222; ISBN13: 9780415928229)
ISBN13: 978-0415928229
ISBN10: 0415928222

Summary: Who is caring for America's children, for the elderly, the sick, and disabled? In practical terms, the answer is:nobody.

Even though most American women are in the workplace, Mona Harrington argues that government and business still operate as if there were a large unpaid labor force at home to care for children and aging parents. The result is the silent collapse of the caregiving system in the U.S. today.

Care and Equality is a clear-eyed, femi
nist reassessment of these issues that moves beyond stop-gap solutions like flex time and maternity leave. Criticizing both sides of the political spectrum -- conservatives' reliance on fictitious stay-at-home moms and liberals' narrow focus on workplace equality -- Harrington broadens the debate to redefine liberal "family values" and the programs needed to realize them at home and at the office. The solutions, she suggests, will require both public and private support for health care, family leave, good wages for care workers, and decent housing.

Proposing policies that will help prevent teen pregnancy, support single-parent families, and relieve the stresses on marriage,Care and Equality offers a tightly reasoned, cliché-free analysis of one of our toughest problems.
