520    "In Mothers Unite!, a bold and hopeful new rallying cry 
       for changing the relationship between home and the 
       workplace, the author envisions a genuine, universal world
       of workplace flexibility that helps mothers who stay at 
       home, those who work part time, and those who work full 
       time balance their commitments to their jobs and their 
       families. Achieving this goal, she argues, will require a 
       broad-based movement that harnesses the energy of existing
       organizations of mothers that already support workplace 
       flexibility in their own ways. Crowley examines the 
       efforts of five diverse national mothers' organizations: 
       Mocha Moms, which aims to assist mothers of color; Mothers
       of Preschoolers (MOPS), which stresses the promotion of 
       Christian values; Mothers & More, which emphasizes support
       for those moving in and out of the paid workforce; 
       MomsRising, which focuses on online political advocacy; 
       and the National Association of Mothers' Centers (NAMC), 
       which highlights community-based networking. After 
       providing an engaging and detailed account of the history,
       membership profiles, strategies, and successes of each of 
       these organizations, Crowley suggests actions that will 
       allow greater workplace flexibility to become a viable 
       reality and points to many opportunities to promote 
       intergroup mobilization and unite mothers once and for
