Dr. Pamela Stone has completed an in-depth study of working mothers who have left their careers in high-level professional jobs to become full-time, stay-at-home mothers. Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home explores why and how women came to make this important decision, the factors influencing it, and its implications for the women themselves, their families, and their communities as well as for women's status.
