Forgotten Families

Ending the Growing Crisis Confronting Children and Working Parents in the Global Economy

Jody Heymann

In the last half-century, radical changes have rippled through the workplace and the home from Boston to Mumbai. Based on over a thousand in-depth interviews and survey data from more than 55,000 families spanning five continents, Jody Heymann's Forgotten Families presents the first truly global account of how the changing conditions of work affect us all. Rich in individual stories and deeply human, Forgotten Families proposes innovative and imaginative ideas for solving the problems of the truly belabored, working together as a global community.
