But what about the children?

Absent this article, A Working Girl can Win: The Case Against Staying at Home with the Kids, a review of
Get to work, by Linda Hirshman--about how women owe it to other women and future generations of women to keep a career--is comment, opinion or fact about what happens to children should they live their Monday-thru-Friday lives in daycare.

Just sayin'.

Also: The article states:
A recent study found that a full 93 percent of "highly qualified" women who have opted out want to find a way back in and can't. And, according to several studies, women in the United States suffer a 10 to 15 percent dock in future earnings when they have children—a drop that doesn't affect men.
I'd like to take a closer look at that study. Too bad she didn't mention its authors. Egads, 93%? I better start practicing my burger flipping skills!

More: John Podhoretz:
I don't take a position in the women-should-stay-home debate. My mom worked. My wife works. My sisters stayed home. But the notion that women "should" work simply so that they can be of aid in the gender revolution is precisely the kind of ideological-feminist b.s. that turned the word "feminism" into a pejorative.

Keep 'em at home, barefoot, and in the kitchen - as God intended! :)

If God intended women to stay barefoot, he wouldn't have invented drool-worthy shoes.

Men should be required to have at least half of the babies going forward.
