"There appears to be a disturbing trend in this nation to try to force single moms to choose between their children and their careers.  If they take their careers seriously, they are labeled as bad mothers.  If they spend time with their children, they are labels as people who can't be serious about careers.  This is a sexist double standard.  No such guilt trip is imposed on men...to choose job over family. Arthur Hacker art. Gloria Allred bio.
