Sandra Tsing Loh At War With The Mommy Wars

Sandra Tsing Loh has written a fantastic review-cum-essay of Leslie Morgan Steiner's book Mommy Wars: Stay-At-Home and Career Moms Face Off on Their Choices, Their Lives, Their Families.

As Loh points out, the essayists in this book are hardly representative of either most stay-at-home or working mothers, because they are all highly paid writers and assorted entertainment industry professionals who are married to husbands with the same economic and professional status.

These highly priviliged if not over priviliged women have all the options one could possibly want. Their anxieties are caused by their inability to select from a plethora of choices, not a lack thereof.
