Summary
  • "In this book, Mary Ann Mason traces the career paths of the first generation of ambitious women who started careers in academia, law, medicine, business, and the media in large numbers in the 1970s and '80s. Many women who had started families but continued working had ended up veering off the path to upper management at a point she calls "the second glass ceiling." Rather than sticking to their original career goals, these women allowed themselves to slide into a second tier of management that offers fewer hours, less pay, lower prestige, and limited upward mobility. Men who did likewise - entered the career world with high aspirations and then started families while working - not only did not show the same trend but reached even higher levels of professional success than men who had no families at all."
  • "Along with her daughter, Mason has written a guide for young women who are facing the tough decision of when - and if - to start a family. It is also a guide for older women seeking a second chance to break through to the next level. The book features anecdotes and strategies from the dozens of women they interviewed."--BOOK JACKET
