My Mom Has Two Jobs

...that's the title of the debut children's book out today by the fabulous Professor Michelle Travis, USF Law faculty. Michelle's research focuses on employment discrimination, work/family conflict and disability discrimination. She wrote My Mom Has Two Jobs when she was about to go back to work after maternity leave and was seeking a way to explain to her two daughters the realities of working mothers. My Mom Has Two Jobs pays homage to working moms by celebrating the important work that women do both inside and outside of the home. The book also breaks down gender stereotypes by depicting women in a wide range of roles, including as a lawyer, engineer, firefighter, pilot, and military sergeant, among others. The moms and children in the book are also racially and ethnically diverse and the illustrations are fabulous. I've ordered my copies for my daughters and my friends' kids.
