November 16, 2009 Review: History of Women in America Wal-Mart Case (Dukes) Hirshman : Choice Feminism : women decide whether to enter the workplace or stay at home and take care of the kids – either option is OK, as long as they choose. Mom at home 16 Dad at home 1 Both parents worked 46 Says Hirshman: “…the unreconstructed family was destined to re-emerge after the passage of feminism’s storm of social change…the belief that women are responsible for child-rearing and homemaking was largely untouched by decades of workplace feminism.” Do women reject feminism, or didn’t it go far enough? As Hirshman claims: [feminism] changed the workplace but it didn’t change men, and, more importantly, it didn’t fundamentally change how women related to men. In the Times stories, not one groom was a stay-at-home dad and none took even a brief paternity leave when the children were born.
