In this Commentary, Case urges more careful thought from a feminist perspective about the as yet underexplored details and implications of proposals to shift more of the burden of care for children from mothers to employers or the state. Among her concerns is that some possible ways of structuring employer or governmental responsibility risk further increasing the advantages of men with wives and children at the expense of relatively untraditional women such as the childless and those in jobs disproportionately occupied by men with dependent spouses.
