The Ambition Decisions: What Women Know About Work, Family, and the Path to Building A Life

By Hana Schank, Elizabeth Wallace

Over the last sixty years, women's lives have transformed radically from generation to generation. Without a template to follow women make important decisions blindly, groping for a way forward, winging it, and hoping it all works out. As they faced unexpectedly fraught decisions about their own lives, journalists Hana Schank and Elizabeth Wallace found themselves wondering about the women they'd graduated alongside. What happened to these women who seemed set to reap the rewards of second-wave feminism, on the brink of taking over the world? So they tracked down their classmates and, over several hundred hours of interviews, gathered and mapped data about real women's lives that has been missing from our conversations about women and the workplace.
