I feel like there has been a lot of back and forth lately about women and their choices around when they go back to work after having kids. I just read another article The Opt-Out Generation Wants Back In by Judith Warner. These women aren’t quite my peers, but are about 10 years ahead of myself. Judith goes back and profiles 10 women who all dropped out of high powered jobs in order to be stay at home moms. Now for varying reasons most of them are trying to re-enter the workplace and it doesn’t seem to be easy for them. A good chunk of them are taking pay cuts, but working in fields that mean something more to them than their previous jobs did.
