Synopsis

With a foreword by Sheryl Sandberg

Sharon Meers and Joanna Strober are professionals, wives, and mothers with five young children between them who believe that everyone wins when men are full parents and women have full careers. They know that families thrive not in spite of working mothers but because of them. The key is tapping into your best resource and most powerful ally: your spouse.

What's the starting point? An attitude shift that puts you and your partner on the road to 50/50. Here are real world solutions for parents who want to get ahead in their careers and still get to their children's football matches and school plays; strategies for working mothers facing gender bias in the workplace; advice to fathers new to the home front; and tips for finding 50/50 solutions to deal with issues of money, time, and much more.

From "baby boot camp" for new dads to exactly what to say when negotiating leave with the boss, this savvy book offers confidence through fresh ideas for today's families. Getting to 50/50 presents a compelling case making it possible for parents to mix professional achievement and a family life that can strengthen their families.
