I like the part about how male leaders including presidents are featured with photos from the golf course. How is this any different from a female perspective? Nice piece!!

As a new mother, I'm currently grappling with this. My corporate job was not flexible with tele- or part-time work and it's important to my husband and me that our child is raised right. So instead of searching for another job (and a daycare!) now that I have a newborn, I'm going to raise our baby. I had a great career and have made great money but I've seen companies have no loyalty to their employees so I don't feel like I'm missing much that I can't return to. As for doing something for myself, my husband is urging me to do freelance work; I may consider going back to school via an online program. I think until companies start making it more accessible for mothers (or fathers!), they're going to continue seeing fall out from experienced, very qualified people like me, unfortunately. So now I'm learning a new skill set - while not valued in professional terms is invaluable personally - and hoping by the time I return to the workforce that things will be viewed a little differently than they were for your mom. Thanks for sharing her story - so sad that she went through that - and thank you for the encouragement to stay on a track even while I'm taking a deliberate leave.
