Juggling Work & Family

by | in Letters

I found the recent cover story (“Striking a Balance: Work & Family” [winter 2012]) to be informative and the profiles extremely impressive. However, with the exception of one or two women, the interviewees tended to be career women rather than working moms. Most women I know work because they have to, and while they may enjoy what they do, their work does not rank ahead of their families. The daily struggles and the guilt that working moms often face were not adequately portrayed in the profiles. My critical comments aside, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about women who manage to have successful careers while retaining their commitment to Torah.
