Summary Shattered Shattered review ✓ 0 Free read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook · Rebecca Asher If we live in an age of euality why are women are still left holding the baby Today women outperform men at school and university They make a success of their early careers and enter into relationships on their own terms So it might seem that euality is in the bag But once they have children their illusions are swiftly shatteredBecoming a mother is a tremendously rewarding experience but for all the current talk of shared parenting women still find themselves bearing primary responsibility for bringing u Rebecca Asher is a self proclaimed feminist and as a man I have little clue on feminists ideas but reading this book has made me focus on one The book title Shattered and the accompanying subtitle Modern Motherhood and The Illusion of Euality did a really nice job in summarizing the whole thesis It is centered to the idea of euality between men and women eual opportunity at work eual opportunity to pursue higher studies and to be eual partners in marriage and how the reality is suddenly shattered after having a baby The cover page features a woman from the past working her way out of never ending chores a feminist nightmare I thought for sure that I was going to be lectured on something about How Men Purposely Deny Women Their Rights throughout the book And I can t believe I bought this book for my wife as a gift during her confinement period just days after our first daughter was born My reading of the first chapter suggested that I will be in trouble But then as I continued reading the book I found out that not all the blames are on men The book is filled with personal anecdotes from mothers and some fathers that blame hospitals the government and its policies foreign governments and their policies employers children playgroups antenatal classes magazines diaper companies and surprisingly women themselves The collection of personal accounts on various issues regarding motherhood can be overwhelming but I imagine that they are helping mother readers to identify themselves with other mothers Although the honesty from The Enemy Within came a little bit later into the book it was a refreshing and enlightening chapter shedding light on why men are being driven out from contributing to parenting and homemaking Apart from telling what is all wrong the book also suggested solutions to balance out the situation Looking outside of the country Asher compared UK government policies with other countries and it seemed that the solution can be found partly in the role of governments Discussions on maternity parental leave length payment and flexibility suggested that the Nordic countries are in better shape when it comes to encouraging shared parenting The comparison pointed out that there are some solutions worth emulating and others refined and adapted I would suggest to young fathers and would be fathers to read this book The agony and misadventures of fellow mothers while being left alone with their baby may not be an interesting read but the collections of stories should at least give the idea that something need to be done so that our children can gain a fair share of parenting from fathers I have found reasons to love my wife and my daughter by reading this book and ideas on how to contribute at home

Summary Shattered Shattered review ✓ 0 Free read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook · Rebecca Asher P their children to the detriment of everything else in their lives Fathers conversely are dragooned into the role of main earner becoming semi detached from their families Both men and women put up too little resistance to this pressure shying away from asking what is really best for themselves and their children The conseuences of this enduring ineuality in the home reach far beyond individuals and into society as a whole A radical new approach is needed if we want to raise our children fairly and happ Gives a very clear and convincing narrative explaining how ineuality in parenting comes about the biggest factor probably being the year of leave on decent pay that is often available to mothers after a baby is born but not fathers Really does make you think about how odd this state of affairs is in a country that is against gender discrimination in so many other ways Her proposals will perhaps not help everyone and are focused on middle class well educated parents Plenty to agree with though for sure
