The market that loses moms

Here is a great take on the recent story in The New York Times about our economy punishing mothers. This in particular jumped out:

“I must stress here that it seems that many of the very brightest, most ambitious women are the first to go. These are the women who sat in the front row, dazzled professors with their insights, the ones with huge red A+ marks on the term papers littering their dorm rooms. Perhaps they leave first because they are the smartest: long before the rest of us numb-nuts, they see the writing on the corporate wall that there is no way to “balance” kids and career in our rabidly capitalistic, Caucasian-male-dominated economy.”
