Thanks to Michael Cook for sharing this article about moms who do math (or don't) from American Scientist. The readers of this blog have all made the choice to balance, with all its challenges. I know of many other women who have left their chosen field in order to find an easier path.
I just have to say that I am very grateful for the women scientists in DCEG. In addition to being leaders in your field, you serve as outstanding models to junior women in science, and to non-scientists women in the workforce. I know it's often a slog, but you do it beautifully.
