Overall, I thought this was a good read. It mainly focused on the struggle of the working woman and how she balances work/marriage/family. I could relate to some of the struggles of the younger women who contributed essays to the book, but, considering my age (20 yrs.), I could not entirely relate to the women struggling with their marriage or parenting. On the other hand, the book reminded me of my mother’s plight. She is a mother of four and after reading some of the stories, I realized how my own mother fit the bill for the “bitch in the house” when she has to assert her authority, or when she is tired of doing chores or dealing with her husband. I understand how a lot of these women are privileged, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have something to share that we could learn from.
