Words of Hope
I wrote recently to Kathleen Gerson, Professor of Sociology at New York University and leading researcher and writer on work/family balance. I wanted to find out her opinion of whether parents in Generations X/Y are ready to overcome the barriers to egalitarian marriages in today's society. Barriers such as flex-unfriendly workplaces and social stigmas for men who put family ahead of career aspirations. So, what did she say?

"I think that new generations are not only willing but increasingly determined to FIGHT for equal marriages and the right to be equal parents. Let's hope they succeed. We need strong collective efforts, and sites such as yours are our best hope!"

Hooray! These words give me reason to cheer and make me happy that Marc and I are a part of this fight. I hope you feel the same, and we can all march forward together.
