Maternal Optimism: Forging Positive Paths through Work and Motherhood shares the stories and research that support the notion of women owning and feeling confident in the choices they make, as they navigate a complex series of work and family transitions. This book challenges the impulse to reduce work/life challenges to a single point in time, such as the decision to return to work after the birth of a child; instead, it recognizes that work and familydecisions are anything but stagnant.
