Fascinating article. I kind of feel like caregiving roles, especially that of motherhood, have always been undervalued - even back in the day when it was the norm, if it wasn't undervalued, then why was there such a great urge to get out of it? Perhaps it does go back to some idea that so-called "men's work" is the "highest" profession, as Slaughter talks about. But really, if we could truly get to a point where we value all roles, including caregivers and low-paying jobs, it would help resolve a lot of these conflicts.
