Description: Glass Ceilings and Bottomless Pits demonstrates that, while the female corporate executive and the welfare mother may seem to be a world apart, they have much in common -- job discrimination, lower pay than men, and primary responsibility for the unpaid work of making sure their children are cared for. Randy Albelda and Chris Tilly provide a cogent analysis of the economic and social realities for women in the United States, across class lines. In an age when the right wing manipulates the dialogue around women's issues to separate middle- and upper-class women from their poorer sisters, this book's facts, figures, and analysis provide a much-needed antidote.

In clear language, with plenty of supporting data, the authors of this important book explain how the rapid changes in the U.S. economy and culture over the past half-century have increased pressures on families and have left single mothers in the dust. They examine the impact of public policies on families and the shortcomings of current welfare reform initiatives, including the 1996 welfare law. However, they don't stop there. Breaking through the artificial boundaries that have constrained the welfare debate, Albelda and Tilly lay out concrete proposals for transforming not just welfare, but a broad range of public policies to provide real support for families and secure women's economic equality.
