Let’s Kill Til It’s Dead: The Myth That Mom’s Salary Pays For Childcare, by Ester Bloom. Choice quote: "When we assume women alone should shoulder the price of childcare — which is, by the way, often extravagant — we are saying, as a culture, that women are still and primarily responsible for the home front. That that’s their real job and whatever outside work they do is secondary, disposable, temporary."

Joy Luck Club. I adore this movie! And I think this is the first movie I can say, I'm glad I saw before reading the book. They are very complimentary! I recommend this movie wholeheartedly. Especially for mother/daughter relationships!
