Family Life in the Great Recession

Hosted by

The post-industrial economy may be more congenial for women. They now outnumber men in America's workforce, and the number of stay-at-home fathers is on the rise. Do cultural stigmas remain?  With women getting more academic degrees, how much longer will it be a man's world?  Are the Great Recession and the economy changing what it means to be a man? We look at the changing demographics in America's workforce.
