When Ada Calhoun found herself in the throes of a midlife crisis, she thought that she had no right to complain. She was married with children and a good career. So why did she feel miserable? And why did it seem that other Generation X women were miserable too? Calhoun decided to find some answers. Speaking with women across America about their experiences as the generation raised to ‘have it all’, Calhoun found that most were exhausted, terrified about money, under-employed, and overwhelmed. In this title, Calhoun opens up the cultural and political contexts of Gen X’s predicament and offers solutions for how to pull oneself out of the abyss – and keep the next generation of women from falling in.
