Summary
"Who is now caring for America's children, for the elderly, the sick, the disabled? In practical and general terms, the answer is: nobody."--BOOK JACKET. "According to Mona Harrington, the traditional system of caregiving - until now almost entirely dependent on the unpaid labor of women in the home - is in a chaotic state of disrepair, as women, out of necessity, move into the workplace."--BOOK JACKET. "Harrington issues an urgent call for new political conversations about assigning responsibility for this important part of the "general welfare" that the Constitution charges us to promote. Care must now, Harrington argues, become the joint responsibility of the family, the private employer, and the various levels of government."--BOOK JACKET. "Outlining a new pro-family politics that recognizes the need of individuals for both autonomy and intimate, lasting connection to others, Harrington proposes policies that include efforts to prevent teenage pregnancy, public support for single-parent families, public and private support for the relief of stresses on marriage, and an effort to bring many more voices into policy discussions."--BOOK JACKET
