It sounds to me like they are saying it is still fine for men to work at a "tenure-track career...inconsistent with a meaningful and full family life." Realistically, women may want this more than men, but I bet lots of men would like the meaningful and full family life also.


I agree completely with your last statement. I would love to be out of this academic rat race, but I do like the employment and geographic security that this job provides as I raise my daughter. And I just got tenure, so it's a life sentence perhaps.


I've been reading your blog for a couple of years and it's so weird, because now this is my thing I have to decide! I'm in an academic appt. but interviewing for the same position in a tenure track appt. All would be systems go for the tenure position, but now I've met this guy and things are good and babies could be in the future. Do I give up tenure for family? But I also give up the 9 month faculty contract for the 12 month academic contract.
