A quiet sisterhood has been slowly building membership among professional women. The problem with this elusive “club” – which is approximately 7.3 million women strong – is that no one wants to be affiliated with it. What’s more, women often gain access right when their careers are beginning to peak and their experience had more value. I’m talking about the ever-increasing cohort of working women struggling with infertility.
If you do even a little research on what top women executives have in common, you'll hear an earful about their educations, work experiences, and styles of leadership. You'll also learn about the strategic career moves they've made on their way to the top. Rarely though, will you get some insight into the more personal of realms: the state of their home lives and marriages. This despite the fact that opting in or out of marriage can have a clear bearing on a woman's career, and has probably helped or hurt your own path of employment, if even in a small way.
