Breadwinning moms are increasingly the norm. Not to be confused with gender parity in the workforce, but it certainly speaks to the need for workplaces to have family-friendly policies around flextime, part-time white collar work, and other accommodations that recognize the fact that this is not the 1950s anymore.

Share your job, shatter the glass ceiling. I think this is an absolutely awesome idea. I have had direct reports in all sorts of situations (part time, contract, .8) to allow them to construct a life that they want. No one has approached me with a job share situation, but I think it would probably address every single one of the drawbacks I see as a manager in the current part-time set-ups. I'd love to propose something like this for future reports. (I am not interested in it for myself so much, because I have a stay-at-home-spouse so I don't feel the pinch of parenting as much as couples where both parents work.)
