Summary
At a time when sexual equality is taken for granted, it comes as a shock to mothers returning to the workplace to find that 'equality' means different things to different employers. Yet, demographics dictate that in most developing nations, the mature worker's skills are more essential than ever in keeping the economy afloat. What will it take to alert governments, employers and women themselves to the fundamental injustice of societies that assert that women can have it all yet disallow most from returning in equal terms to the workplace? What will it take to put this right?
