Review:

The enormous shift of American women from full-time, unpaid homemakers to members of the paid workforce, Mona Harrington argues, reveals the extent to which the care of the American family once rested on their shoulders--and she believes that this societal change, with its benefits and problems, requires correspondingly large changes in public policy. Care and Equality is a clear-eyed, intelligent assessment of the social policies of the Clinton era and why their proponents have been unable to bring about healthy policy reform. Harrington, inspired by her strong belief in the liberal movement's capacity to effect positive change, outlines her own agenda: "To assure good care to all members of the society should become a primary principle of our common life," she writes, "along with the assurance of liberty, equality and justice." Care and Equality is an enlightening read for policymakers and electorate both. --Maria Dolan

From the Publisher:

"Mona Harrington's superb book examines just why the promise of gender equality remains an illusion until society gets serious about the issue of who provides care -- for children, for the aged, for the disabled. Harrington persuasively demonstrates that until we get serious about care as a political, moral and public policy issue, the private unpaid caregivers -- overwhelmingly female -- will have less than the promised legal equality in the workplace and elsewhere in society."
--Robert Kuttner, co-editor, The American Prospect

"No one better articulates the pressing American definition of care for children, elderly, disabled and communities. Harrington's timely book beautifully formulates the central political challenge not only for women, but for the nation as a whole."
--Martha Minow, Harvard Law School, author of Making All the Difference

"Care and Equality is an indispensible guide to a political agenda that encompasses a vigorous pro-family policy along with equality for women. Its lively and clear prose, along with its compelling message, should gain it the large audience it richly deserves."
--Mary L. Shanley, Vassar College, author of Reinventing the Family
