Film Description:
"Joy is a research biologist, a consultant to a large company. She is also a widow with two school-age children. In discussing her own dilemmas she speaks for many other women. 'The powers that be know that women do work, but they turn a deaf ear.' Apart from 'discrimination against women,' Joy sees the absence of universal day care as a loss for children too."
