What the Opt-Out PhenomenonCan Teach Us about Work and Family

Office, home, and the balance between them
 When signicant numbers o college-educated American womenbegan, in the early twenty-rst century, to leave paid work to becomestay-at-home mothers, an emotionally charged national debate erupted.Karine Moe and Dianna Shandy, a proessional economist and ananthropologist, respectively, decided to step back rom the sometimesoverheated rhetoric around the so-called mommy wars. They wondered what really inspired women to opt out, and they wanted to gauge thephenomenon’s genuine repercussions.
Glass Ceilings and 100-Hour Couples
is the ruit o their investigation—a rigorous, accessible, andsympathetic reckoning with this hot-button issue in contemporary lie.Drawing on hundreds o interviews rom around the country, originalsurvey research, and national labor orce data, Moe and Shandy reocusthe discussion o women who opt out rom one where they are the objecto scrutiny to one where their aspirations and struggles tell us about thear broader swath o American women who continue to juggle paid work and amily. Moe and Shandy examine the many pressures that infuencea woman’s decision to resign, reduce, or reorient her career. These includethe mismatch between child-care options and workplace demands, theact that these women married men with demanding careers, the proes-sionalization o stay-at-home motherhood, and broad ailures in publicpolicy. But Moe and Shandy are equally attentive to the resilience o  women in the ace o lie decisions that might otherwise threaten theirsense o sel-worth. Moe and Shandy nd, or instance, that women who have downsized their careers stress the value o social networks—o “running with a pack o smart women” who’ve also chosen to emphasizemotherhood over paid work.
“Moe and Shandy have written a comprehensive account of themany reasons behind the ‘opt-out revolution.’ Their engaging pre
sentation makes for a fascinating read—one that will be of interestto anyone who feels the disconnect between the current state of work/life balance in this country and senses that possibilities exist
for something so much better.”

hen some women let their jobs, they soon dis-covered that they became “invisible” in social set-tings. A ormer lobbyist noted that when she tells peopleshe’s now at home with her kids, the response eels to herlike: “‘I could have sworn there was a person there, butI guess not.’ So you really are invisible to the rest o the world. You have to have a strong ego, and you have to be willing to have people turn and walk away because you’re just a mom and, so, you’re boring.” Another mom echoedthis sentiment when she said: “It’s hard on my ego to bethe stay-at-home mom. . . . It’s painul to see people’s eyesglaze over when I say what I do.” Another said, “One o the biggest challenges o being a stay-at-home parent is you have to have a really strong ego, because you essen-tially drop o the ace o the planet as ar as the rest o the world is concerned. You don’t exist.”
