Abstract:

What's wrong with this picture? That's the question [the author] asked herself after taking a good, hard look at the world of modern motherhood, at anxious women at work and at home and in bed with unhappy husbands. [This book] offers a ... history of contemporary American culture. It ... examines why mothers who appear to have everything are feeling exhausted and dissatisfied and powerless. It explores how the current generation of moms became a generation of control freaks convinced they must handle everything alone. [The author] provides a context in which to understand the way we live now and to imagine an alternative way of life. She argues that all of us - men, women, society at large - need to demand more support from our families: from our government, from our workplaces, and from one another. -Dust jacket.
