What Women Want Next

"In my twenties, I thought sex and career would solve everything. At thirty, I thought marriage would. Later I tried motherhood, therapy, and then divorce. At forty, I decided to renovate."
With all the choices available to today’ s women, why don’ t they more feel fulfilled? "What Women Want Next" is Susan Maushart’ s meditation— by turns profound and laugh-out-loud funny— on that central dilemma of postfeminist life. At one point she had it all, so why wasn’ t she happy? With "What Women Want Next," Maushart combines research with personal history in a dynamic attempt to answer this question.
Feminism may have led women to life’ s banquet table, but the meal they make of it is up to them. How to balance life and work, sex and sleep, child care and self-care? And why has women’ s guilt— that glass ceiling of the soul— become the biggest barrier they face? "What Women Want Next" is the first book to look at the spectrum of a woman’ s life and attempt to demonstrate how she can shape her own destiny throughout all its stages.
