This is what gets me:
An implied, faintly sinister coercion -- a good mom doesn't want money -- fuels a system that relies on our unpaid childcare, household chores and volunteer work but offers no safety net.
Also, as journalist Katy Read details throughout the piece, a system that continues to underpay women. B/c of course we do not want or really need the money from work to which we apparently are attached only tenuously: "Opt" in or out.
What will it take for the necessity of women's various works to be recognized?
I worry that These Hard Economic Times will make it only harder.
