i just finished reading the book flux by peggy orenstein. it's about the role of women in the 21st century and how we traverse life in a 1/2 changed society. like, for example, young girls today are told that they can be anything they want to be, do anything they want to do. but in reality that's not really possible. our society isn't set up for women to be able to actually have it all. eventually something's gotta give, be it career, family or money. in any event, a fairly good book. i don't necessarily think that everyone falls into the categories of people that orenstein studies, but i definitely think she's got some good points. too bad that most of the people who read this book will be women b/c i think it's really men who should be reading stuff like this.
