Abstract

Highly educated and skilled professional women that take a career break to focus on raising children are faced with the enormous difficulty of re-entry into the workforce. This problem has a negative effect on our economy and on womens advancement in corporate America. However, the current political landscape around work-life conflict for women neglects this issue. I examine the social and structural obstacles to re-entry and analyze the limited emergent infrastructure that exists to diminish them. My thesis recognizes life sequencing as a socially and institutionally underdeveloped path that could be a viable option for high achieving women that strive for professional success and fulfilling motherhood.
