Policy Forum: The Price of Motherhood: Visible at Last on September 24th

Ann Crittenden, the author of a groundbreaking book on motherhood in America, will be the featured speaker at a virtual public policy forum sponsored by the National Women’s Political Caucus of California on Friday, September 24, 2021.  Based on her book The Price of Motherhood:  Why the Most Important Job in the World is Still the Least Valued, the forum will illuminate how the issues Crittenden identified some 20 years ago have persisted and have finally become visible to the world at large due to the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on families, especially on mothers.
