About this title


Congresswoman Schroeder candidly discusses her own family and family needs in an overview of family centered issues concerning the nation, including childcare, birth control, abortion, parental leave, family health care, and housing

From Publishers Weekly:

During 15 years in Congress, Schroeder, representative from Colorado and a recent presidential hopeful, has combined professional and family responsibilities in a way, she notes here, that has prompted her unflagging activism regarding problems faced by the average American family today. The Schroeder family, to be sure, is not average. With the help of tolerant relatives and a supportive husband, Schroeder as a young woman was able simultaneously to teach, practice law and raise two children. She stresses that in Congress she involves herself with issues of day care, the single parent, the displaced housewife, illness in the family and other matters that surround a most important but underrepresented constituencyour nation's children. Arising out of Schroeder's travels throughout the United States on the Great American Family tour in 1987-88, this book, written with freelancers Camp and Lipner, impressively documents her efforts to create a national family policy.
