Belle, Tolling

Belle Lettre responds (compellingly) to Lisa Belkin on "opting back in" to the workplace after taking time off for children: "[J]ust because a few elite firms are changing their policies, or just because there is a 'many' or 'most' shift in public opinion about work/life balance doesn't mean that there's really a change coming. I hope there is one. But I'll believe it when I see it--or rather, the empirical data and a pro-worker amended statute." Read the whole thing. There is much there to chew on, primarily concerning Belkin's related '03 "Opting Out" piece and a rigorous response thereto by Catherine Albiston.
