In this special interview, Cait talks to journalist and economist Ann Crittenden, whose book The Price of Motherhood changed her perspective on new motherhood. Brace yourself for a discussion about the value our country puts (or doesn’t put) on women’s traditional work, the (still pervasive) “mommy tax,” how the statistics about how moms are faring in America are as bad (or worse) as they were 20 years ago… and how hoards of grannies might be the ones to save the day.
