Glass Ceiling Shatters -- for Boys
The Ms. Foundation for Women---original organizer of Take Our Daughters to Work Day---announced today, on the tenth anniversary of the event?s founding, that next year it will encourage parents to bring their sons to work as well. Although many parents and employers have already re-christened the event Bring Your Child to Work Day, the Ms. Foundation?s announcement is significant in that it expands the days? focus to include career/family balance issue and the difficult choices that women in particular are forced to make in this area. The event was originally intended to boost the aspirations and career goals of girls in their pre- to early teen years, when they are particularly to decreased self-esteem and academic performance.
