Women, Work, Family: How Advanced Reproductive Technology is Changing the Balance

Come hear Rachel Lehmann-Haupt talk about the new edition of her book, In Her Own Sweet Time: Egg Freezing and the New Frontiers of Family

Rachel is a graduate of the Berkeley J-School and a writer and the founder of the multimedia production studio, StoryMade Studio. She is also a proud and happy DIY Mom, or what is more commonly referred to as a Single Mom by Choice, having conceived her son through donor insemination. 

She writes eloquently and passionately about how today many women pursue graduate degrees and professional advancement before becoming mothers, and how new reproductive choices and technologies, including egg-freezing (what she calls “the Pill of the Technology Generation”) are changing the rules of the work/family balance.  Women, be wise: follow the reportage on the many ways to make families today, and why it’s not just bio-technology that matters — mentors, friend networks, and, guess who, men play a major role in taking on the challenges that face young women who want career and family.
