Every mother is a daughter. But there is churn and change between generations — and especially today's generations, with careers, and "mommy wars," and women torn between home and work. Some things are constant and passed down from mother to daughter. Some are changed. Some are lost.
Pediatrician and writer Perri Klass and her 77-year-old mother, Sheila Solomon Klass sat down to capture about what's constant and what's changed in their own lives as mother and daughter: with each other, with children, with work and men. It's a great exchange.
Tune in to hear a conversation with Perri Klass and her mother about their book, "Every Mother is a Daughter: The Never-Ending Quest for Success, Inner Peace And A Really Clean Kitchen."
