The New Zeitgeist Of Working vs. Stay-At-Home Moms: Watch This CBS Roundtable On The New “Balance”

My sisters and I were lucky enough to be raised by a mom who devoted her life to her kids.  A stay-at-home mom, she was always there for us when we left for school, and was there when we returned.  But not all women want to be stay-at-home moms.  Many women and mothers choose instead to broaden their horizons in the workforce, and the debate about what is the perfect “balance” between home vs. work has been at the forefront of the feminist movement for the past 60 years and beyond.  In 2003, writer Lisa Belkin of The New York Times, wrote a story about women who were choosing to opt-out of the workforce, and Lesley Stahl profiled these same women in a 2004 report for 60 Minutes.  Earlier this morning Belkin, Stahl, and Sheilah O’Donnel (one of the women profiled in the original 2003 story) sat down for a roundtable discussion on CBS This Morning, and you can watch it in full below.  And if you like this, you will absolutely love the outstanding 3-part PBS documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America, narrated by Meryl Streep, which you can also watch in full below as well.
