This book presents a challenge to feminist perspectives that see the glass ceiling as the exclusive
domain of women's careers and work life. The authors address existing debates and extend them to
include original empirical evidence from several US and UK comparative studies that look at the effect of
caring for dependents (including care for children and elder care) upon the careers and aspirations of both
men and women.
