I recently read this book and I think it really helped me to gain some perspective about why it's actually very important that I'm a working mama!  Highly recommend The Feminine Mistake by Leslie Bennetts.  I know this book is somewhat controversial, and she is certainly very strong in her opinions, but I really appreciated her perspective!

I'm going to read this.  Thanks for recommending it.  I like to read books about working mamas, whether controversial or not, I think it is good for us all to think about the subject.  I really liked Getting to 50/50, which I know a lot of people didn't like or find useful.  I can use all the encouragement I can get about working...b/c it is just so hard sometimes, even when you relatively like what you do.

I bought the Kindle version of the book based on your recommendation, and really enjoyed it. Thanks!
