A Mother's Work

Home: Issue One

This issue is the first of a three-part series on the theme of “Home and the Family.” Here we reflect on the meaning, challenges and joys of motherhood, examine the impact of day care on young children and take part in the recent debate on “work–life balance,” as sparked by Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead and Anne-Marie Slaughter’s influential article on the same topic in The Atlantic.
