Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home

June 20, 2007

What happens to women who make the difficult decision to leave their careers behind to stay at home and raise children? How hard is it for them to re-enter the workforce years later? We’ll examine the challenges and implications of such decisions this hour with Associate Professor of Sociology at Hunter College and The Graduate Center, City University of New York, Pamela Stone. Professor Stone is also the author of “Opting Out: Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home” (University of California Press, 2007).
