Bending over Backwards, Rebecca Huntley tells us how it is

Many Mothers will relate to this Age article by Rebecca Huntley. The article talks very frankly about the pull to be  the best possible mother as well as the pull  to support the family financially. A priority conflict that far fewer Fathers face than Mothers. All further complicated by gender inequity in the workforce.  Statistics at the end of the article just scary. This is a must read article.

A Fair Deal For Women’s very own Veronica Sheen explains why this welfare review fails to understand Australia’s labour market.
