9780099548843: Shattered: Modern Motherhood and the Illusion of Equality

If we live in an age of equality, why are women are still left holding the baby?

Today, women outperform men at school and university. They make a success of their early careers and enter into relationships on their own terms. But once they have children, their illusions of equality are swiftly shattered as the time machine of motherhood transports them back to the 1950s.

Entertaining and controversial, Shattered exposes the inequalities that still exist between women and men - at work, at home and within relationships - and sets out a bold manifesto for a more fulfilling family life.

Review:

"I was utterly gripped. This is powerful stuff. Rebecca Asher's take of the culture of parenting is radical, original and refreshingly spirited, a heartfelt call for change" (Viv Groskop Daily Telegraph)

"Asher is an elegant writer and a lucid thinker... This is a polemical book, stuffed full of research and case studies; yet it is gripping enough to read through the night. It left me fired up with reformist zeal" (Jemima Lewis Mail on Sunday)

"A furious, but immensely articulate, puncturing of the myth that the nirvana of parental equality has been achieved... An intelligent, thoroughly researched and highly readable contribution to a debate that urgently needs to be aired in the corridors of power, as well as through gritted teeth over snatched cups of bitter coffee in baby and toddler groups" (Susan Flockhart Sunday Herald)

"Asher wants a revolution, and her conviction is invigorating... This book should be read by parents and policymakers alike" (Rachel Seiffert Guardian)

"Should be required reading for policy makers and new parents alike... This is the academic counterpart to the roller coaster of emotional experience that forms the basis for books such as Rachel Cusk's A Life's Work" (Rebecca Taylor Time Out)

Book Description:

If we live in an age of equality, why are women are still left holding the baby? A revolutionary new manifesto for achieving a new equality of the sexes in family life.
