This innovative study focuses on high-achieving women and their families. Both partners were interviewed in an attempt to define the challenges these families face and the secrets of their successes. The authors′ analysis of the successes and failures of these relationships is extended into a general examination of the disjuncture between social change and changes in individuals′ attitudes and behaviour. The result is an important contribution to the understanding of the effects of shifting gender roles on the modern marriage, on contemporary families and on society as a whole.
