The battle rages in every mother: stay at home or go back to work. This panel at New York's 92nd Street Y features four contributors to the new book The Mommy Wars (edited by Leslie Morgan Steiner) as they discuss the state of motherhood. The panelists represent multiple points on the "working full time vs. stay-at-home" spectrum, and they share their personal experiences and opinions with brutal honesty and wit.
Columnist and professor Susan Cheever is the author of 11 books, including her chronicle about motherhood, As Good as I Could Be.
Molly Jong-Fast is the author of the quasi-autobiographical novels Normal Girl and Girl (Maladjusted).
Dawn Drzal was an editor who became a stay-at-home mother soon after the birth of her only child.
Terri Minsky is the creator of several television shows, including Lizzie McGuire.
Moderator Naomi Wolf is the author of The Beauty Myth and The Treehouse.
Leslie Morgan Steiner is a mother of three and works at The Washington Post.
