Paternalistic federal laws and regulations thwart initiatives to grant women the same economic liberties as men. Why have federal institutions overseeing employment, employee benefits, childcare, taxation, health care, education, retirement, and social security adopted such a warped and antiquated perspective of traditional family life? And what can be done about it? Kimberley Strassel, Celeste Colgan, and John Goodman answer these important and provocative questions. They call upon the federal government to get out of the way of marketplace initiatives.
