Kids Don’t Damage Women’s Careers — Men Do

An interesting article in the Medium by Jessica Velenti titled Kids Don’t Damage Women’s Careers – Men Do. As Valenti states people have “to stop believing that women do the majority of care work because we want to. It’s because we’re expected to, because we’re judged if we don’t, and most of all, because it’s incredibly difficult to find male partners willing to do an equal share of the work.” It is an undeniable fact that it’s getting harder and harder for women to juggle career and motherhood and there are some very specific reasons why but firstly “we need to stop framing mothers’ workplace woes as an issue of “balance,” and start talking about how men’s domestic negligence makes it so hard for us to succeed.”
