Award-winning journalist and mom-of-three Paula Faris gives insightful and practical steps for better working, momming, and living to millions of overwhelmed working moms.
In Paula Faris’s most important reporting yet, You Don’t Have to Carry It All reveals a game plan that will not only make being a working mom “work” but will also reveal how and why society needs to value mothers first. Weaving together groundbreaking research with inspirational wisdom, she:
recognizes the history of working moms in America and its lasting impact today, shows how motherhood has scientifically improved the minds and capabilities of women, encourages moms to link arms, not only with each other but also with men, and proves why corporate America is better with moms at the helm. After interviewing countless experts, thought leaders and mothers, Faris believes we can join together to create a path forward for ditching the mom guilt, ending burnout, and finally giving working moms the support they so desperately need. Because with working moms on the job, there are literally no hands more capable of creating the change we need!

FROM THE INTRODUCTION
I interviewed men and women of different races, socioeconomic statuses, political affiliations, and faiths, and we all agree that there are significant, systemic roadblocks harming American families that can be traced back to how our country and its corporations treat working moms. I experienced it. My friends experienced it. The strangers I connected with all over the country have experienced it. This has set me on a journey to get answers.
All you have to do is read, then act. Working moms have NO free time. My team and I at CARRY Media like to say that you get about fourteen minutes a day to yourself. Fourteen. This book is divided into ten chapters. Within those chapters are sections with bolded subtitles. Each section will take you no more than fourteen minutes to read. If you will give me your “spare” time, I will give American moms a game plan for how to ditch mom guilt and find a better way forward.
