Description

One of the most significant social and economic changes of recent years has been the explosion in the number of mothers in the work place and in paid employment generally. Child care policy, provision and funding has in no way kept up with this change. Who Will Mind the Baby? explores how working mothers negotiate their responsibilities in the face of these difficulties.

The book contrasts the limited child care policies of the United States and Canada with the more advanced situation in Europe and Australia, focusing in particular on the coping strategies of working mothers.
