Many American women, even today, chose a path away from a talent or discipline to focus on marriage and family, raising children and placing their highly refined skills in a creative field on the back burner. Choice. The challenge remains today for parents and professionals to seek a path, sacrifice personal and professional careers as the price for raising a family.
