GETTING TO 50/50 How Working Parents Can Have It All by Sharing It All

by | Read by Marguerite Gavin

Business & Finance • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Important cultural commentary like this needs exactly the kind of voice personality that Marguerite Gavin brings to this audio production. She sounds like a mature adult—thoughtful, intelligent, no personal agenda—and in this performance she’s found a way to make her assertive diction sound appealingly authoritative. She’s a perfect vehicle for the authors’ positive message: A career-minded mother can get back to work without shortchanging her children if she’s willing to confront the way that fathers typically do less child care and housework, even when both parents work full time. With persuasive narratives, myth-busting research, and many practical suggestions, the book shows a path for a fairer division of labor in which everyone’s ambitions and potentials are served.
