The next generation of women want a career and a life, but they don't know how to get both. Having watched the boomer generation, they know they don't want their options: sacrificing family life for high-powered careers or consigning themselves to the "mommy track."Not Your Mother's Life shows how today's young women are uniquely poised to reach out and take-or create-the work/life balance that proved so elusive for the boomers. The key, Peters argues, is for women to use their newfound economic power to choose their lives instead of letting their lives choose them. Not only can they decide on the career, the company, and the workday they want, they can choose a spouse who shares their goals and will shape their relationship to support them. Full of real-life examples of women who are doing it their own way, Not Your Mother's Life offers this new generation a vision of how to remake the work world according to their own needs-ultimately benefiting women and men.
