Summary
"At the very time when most women's lives are defined by a lack of income, time, and energy, and when being stressed-out is for them more common than the common cold, politicians and other professional guardians of public virtue are stridently lamenting the loss of what they define as "family values." Even as women enter the workforce to provide essential income for their families while attending to children, spouse, and the endless round of domestic chores, every sort of social ill from drug addiction to unwed mothering is laid at their door." "As Gloria Albrecht shows, this dismal situation is not merely a cultural irony. It is a potential social tragedy." "In a book that combines learning, eloquence, and wit, Albrecht explains how this paradox symbolizes the new face of family life in America's postindustrial economy. Hitting Home carefully documents the growing abandonment by business and government of their social responsibility to sustain the well-being of families. She exposes "family friendly" policies as being in fact policies that are friendly primarily to the profit-oriented goals of the corporate world. Business strategies, touted as the new methods of efficiency, reveal the fundamentally anti-family nature of an economy designed from its origins to exclude those authentic values that arise from caring relationships."--Jacket
