"When The Second Shift was first published in 1989, it was hailed as "a scream in the dark" and "a brilliant, urgently needed analysis ... of the working woman who has it all". Now, in the twenty-first century, The Second Shift remains as important and relevant as when it was first published. As the majority of women entered the workforce, sociologist and Berkeley professor Arlic Hochschild was one of the first to talk about what really happened in dual-career households. Many people were amazed to find that women were still responsible for the majority of child care and housework even though they also worked outside the home. Now, in this updated edition with a new introduction by the author, we discover how much things have, and have not, changed for women today."--BOOK JACKET
The second shift : working families and the revolution at home by Arlie Russell Hochschild( Book )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"More than twenty years ago, sociologist and University of California, Berkeley, professor Arlie Hochschild set off a tidal wave of conversation and controversy with his bestselling book, The Second Shift In it, she examined what really happens in dual-career households. Adding together time in paid work, child care, and housework, she found that working mothers put in a month of work a year more than their spouses. Updated for a workforce now half female, this edition cites a range of new studies and statistics and includes a new afterword in which Hochschild assesses how much-and how little-has changed for women today."--pub. desc
