First published in Glamour magazine in 2002, this essay explores the difficult challenges working women face as they attempt to balance their work and family obligations. In this day and age, women are expected to--and frequently forced to--have full-time careers, while, at the same time, they are expected to do most of the childrearing and housekeeping. Karenna Gore Schiff asks, "Where are America's family values?" and argues that American society and government are punishing working mothers.
