Do babies matter? : gender and family in the ivory tower by Mary Ann Mason( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new generation of scholars differs in many ways from its predecessor of just a few decades ago. Academia once consisted largely of men in traditional single-earner families. Today, men and women fill the doctoral student ranks in nearly equal numbers and most will experience both the benefits and challenges of living in dual-income households. This generation also has new expectations and values, notably the desire for flexibility and balance between careers and other life goals. However, changes to the structure and culture of academia have not kept pace with young scholars' desires for work-family balance. Do Babies Matter? is the first comprehensive examination of the relationship between family formation and the academic careers of men and women. The book begins with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, moves on to early and mid-career years, and ends with retirement. Individual chapters examine graduate school, how recent PhD recipients get into the academic game, the tenure process, and life after tenure. The authors explore the family sacrifices women often have to make to get ahead in academia and consider how gender and family interact to affect promotion to full professor, salaries, and retirement. Concrete strategies are suggested for transforming the university into a family-friendly environment at every career stage. The book draws on over a decade of research using unprecedented data resources, including the Survey of Doctorate Recipients, a nationally representative panel survey of PhDs in America, and multiple surveys of faculty and graduate students at the ten-campus University of California system
Mothers on the fast track : how a new generation can balance family and careers by Mary Ann Mason( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume 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. The authors point out that many highly educated women drop out of the career pipeline that leads men (and some women who sacrifice family life) to the top echelons of academia, law, business, etc. The implications of this feminized brain drain are as profound for the welfare of our nation as they are for the welfare of women and children. The authors argue that meaningful measures of gender equity must include not only women's equal representation in corporate boardrooms and at university podiums but also women's (and men's) ability to sustain satisfactory family lives without being relegated to second-class status -- without the either/or proposition too many ambitious women face. The authors propose measures to reform the workplace from the traditional high-pressured male-centric models to more humane and family-friendly environments where women can be better supported so that our nation need not lose a vast pool of intellectual and creative talent
From father's property to children's rights : the history of child custody in the United States by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 1,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents crucial periods of change in social attitudes and the law regarding child custody: the adaptation of English common law in the colonial period, the move toward maternal preference and child welfare in the early twentieth century, the advent in the 1970s of no-fault divorce and joint custody, and the growing influence of the social sciences, especially psychology, in contemporary custody disputes
The custody wars : why children are losing the legal battle and what we can do about it by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Custody Wars Mary Ann Mason, one of the country's foremost family law experts, argues for the restoration of children's rights to the foreground of the custody debate. Mason tackles some of the toughest questions facing the courts today." "Should an abusive husband be given custody of his child? What about unwed fathers? Gay parents? Full-time working mothers? How much say should young children have in court?" "The Custody Wars is the first Book to construct a framework for considering all custody issues from a children's perspective and to offer proposals for changing the way disputes are settled. Drawing on a wealth of legal cases and psychological research - as well as the stories of families caught in these disputes - Mary Ann Mason presents a bold program for reform."--Jacket

Babies of technology : assisted reproduction and the rights of the child by Mary Ann Mason( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines each aspect of assisted reproductive technology, from the oldest and still most widely used intervention--artificial insemination by sperm donor--all the way to the future of genetically modified human beings. Mason and Ekmann investigate frozen eggs, in vitro fertilization, surrogacy, and the demographics of who is participating in the assisted reproduction industry in the United Sates and internationally. They also identify the issues affecting children who are being born as a result of these current and advancing technologies, including health problems, identity confusion, legal status, and potentially superhuman traits and abilities. The authors argue that we need to protect our babies of technology by advocating for a basic International Code of Rights for Children of Assisted Reproductive Technology with principles that could be applied to established and evolving technologies. They also propose creating a federal administrative agency whose primary responsibilities would be monitoring assisted reproduction, instituting guidelines, and maintaining records of all procedure performed across the United States
