Abstract:

"When The Second Shift was first published in 1989, it was hailed as "a scream in the dark" and "a brilliant, urgently needed analysis ... of the working woman who has it all". Now, in the twenty-first century, The Second Shift remains as important and relevant as when it was first published. As the majority of women entered the workforce, sociologist and Berkeley professor Arlic Hochschild was one of the first to talk about what really happened in dual-career households. Many people were amazed to find that women were still responsible for the majority of child care and housework even though they also worked outside the home. Now, in this updated edition with a new introduction by the author, we discover how much things have, and have not, changed for women today."--BOOK JACKET.
