Can working moms have it all? Is there such a thing as a perfect balance between work and family, or is it one big exhausting fantasy for the 26 million mothers who work? Working mom Elizabeth Vargas, fresh from her own maternity leave, takes viewers to the frontline of the working mom's daily tug of war between family and work. Vargas, who speaks about her own personal struggle in the quest to have it all, talks to working moms from across the country, experts, politicians and advocates about the challenges of doing it all often without job flexibility or affordable day care.
Why hasn't more been done to help working mothers? Among 168 countries surveyed, the United States is only one of five that does not have paid maternity leave for mothers. Vargas interviews Senator Christopher Dodd, who says it is time for government to pay for six weeks of maternity leave. Vargas also interviews Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor Karen Czarnecki, who disagrees: "I think people have to take responsibility for themselves, and they shouldn't always look to government to have an answer for them."
