After reading what Steven Greenhouse has to say about Lisa Belkin’s October 2003 New York Times Magazine cover story titled “The Opt-Out Revolution” I decided to take a break from reading The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker and re-read this article about highly successful Princeton-educated women leaving their careers to raise families.
I remember when I first read it when it was published and feeling for the first time that my own belief that success should be defined by joyfulness and a happy family (and not by one’s accomplishments and career) was perhaps shared by other educated women.
It was such a relief.
Anyway, it was good to re-read this article. Now back to reading The Big Squeeze.
