Chapter 7  The Defense of Marriage Act 1996 – Excludes same-sex couple from receiving federal benefits  Second shift – the average working woman spends more than twice as much time on household chores and child care than the average working man  Glass ceiling – unseen structural barriers that contribute to far less women at the top of their professions or corporations  16 % of corporate officers at Fortune 500 companies are women  Success and likeability are negatively correlated for women  Feminism of poverty – the 2 poorest groups in the US are women raising children alone and women over 65 living alone  In 2006, the number of poor children under age 18 in the US was 12.8 million (17.4%) or 1 child in 6  “The Mommy Tax” Ann Crittenden o Women who earn almost as much as men are a narrow group: between 27-33 with no children o Mommy tax - $1 million for a college – educated woman o Crittenden calculates her mommy tax to be between $600,000 and $700,000 not including the loss of a pension o Women with children make significantly less than those without o Daddy tax – men who are primary caregivers also pay a heavy price. This suggests that the heavy personal tax is due to work rules and practices and habits of mind that discriminate against anyone who cannot perform like an “unencumbered” worker o In a survey of 348 male managers at 20 fortune 500 companies, dads with working wives earned about 20% less than dads with stay-at- home wives = family wage gap o How to lower the mommy tax  Be a man strategy  Do not have children  Postpone motherhood as long as you can  Government, private employers, and/or husbands share much more of the costs of raising children such as done in countries like France and Sweden  Expand the antidiscrimination laws to cover parents. One lawyer argues that the design of work around masculine norms can be reconceptualized as discrimination
