Women employing women, mothers employing mothers: hiring domestic help has long been the solution for mothers seeking work/family balance. Former war journalist and new mother Megan K. Stack examines class, privilege and the apportioning of labor when faced with the inequalities of parenthood, and reflects on how her life becomes intertwined with those of the women who work for her.

Perempuan yang mempekerjakan perempuan, ibu yang mempekerjakan ibu: mempekerjakan asisten rumah tangga telah lama menjadi solusi bagi ibu yang mencari keseimbangan dalam pekerjaan/keluarga. Mantan jurnalis perang dan ibu baru Megan K. Stack meneliti kelas, hak istimewa dan pembagian kerja ketika dihadapkan dengan ketidaksetaraan saat menjadi orang tua, dan merefleksikan bagaimana hidupnya menjadi terhubung dengan kehidupan para perempuan yang bekerja untuknya.
