Gender Roles

‘We explain why we work full time. Or part-time. Or from home. Or why we left work to stay home with the kids.’: Mom urges ‘I’m finished explaining choices best for my family’

“We explain why we decided to leave him. Or stay with him. Or have another baby. Our decision to bottle or breastfeed. We apologize for the condition of our homes, our clothes. We give excuses for why we can’t make it to the party. Or why we need help from a nanny a few hours a week. I’ve been married almost 20 years now, and I’ve NEVER heard my husband explain his choices. To anyone.”
