Paternalistic federal laws and regulations thwart initiatives to grant women the same economic liberties as men. Why have federal institutions overseeing employment, employee benefits, childcare, taxation, health care, education, retirement, and social security adopted such a warped and antiquated perspective of traditional family life? And what can be done about it? Kimberley Strassel, Celeste Colgan, and John Goodman answer these important and provocative questions. They call upon the federal government to get out of the way of marketplace initiatives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The authors ... succeed in proving that conservatives can offer compelling solutions to women's issues. * Publishers Weekly *
A thorough analysis - with solutions - of how 21st century problems and U.S. public policies toward women and their families remain frozen in the mid-20th century. -- Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)
Leaving Women Behind is a must read because it offers not only economically positive solutions but also family-strengthening ones as well. -- Sally Pipes, President and CEO, Pacific Research Institute
This book offers firsthand, personal accounts about the progress that women, particularly working mothers and their families, have made in achieving workplace equity. More importantly, it points out how far we need to go and what we need to do to get there. -- Former U.S. Senator Zell Miller (R-GA)
This book offers a compelling analysis of the changing demographics of American families today, the impact of often unfair policies, and sound suggestions for addressing the problem. -- Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX)
Strassel and her coauthors have made a valuable contribution to public policy by showing that our laws need to catch up to the 21st century. -- Diana Furchtgott-Roth * New York Post *
This book provides personal insight into the single most important social and economic development of the 20th century, the entry of women into the labor market, and provides sensible and workable 21st century solutions. -- Nancy Pfotenhauer, Independent Women's Forum
American families need relief from the higher taxation and tough choices facing mothers who work outside the home. The first-hand accounts in this book reveal how and why public policy, especially Social Security and tax policy, must change to reflect the needs of modern families. -- Congresswoman Deborah Pryce (R-OH)
This book is a personal look into the problems women and families face in the 21st century economy. It is a must-read for changing the hopelessly dated American institutions causing those problems. -- Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX)
A real eye-opener, a wake-up call for all women and a common-sense case for overdue reforms. -- Terry Neese, Co-Founder, Women Impacting Public Policy
