Abstract

Work, and in particular white, professional woman's work is at the center of contemporary feminist discourse. Newspaper articles discuss the glass ceiling and the inner lives of female CEOs; opinion pieces advise on proving oneself at the office without neglecting a family. Fall in love with your job so that it doesn't feel like effort, they say. But don't neglect your family: too much time with that BlackBerry could make your child a "smartphone orphan." A sampling of articles in the past year might lead a person to conclude that the key problem facing women today is how to become better workers.
