The results included the fact that 88% of those working full time would rather work part time or stay at home with their children.
The authors of the report conclude from the survey results that :
Mothers do not, in general, make a choice about whether to go back to work or stay at home as a full time mum. Choice has been virtually eradicated.
The ‘playground politics’, often portrayed by the media, of working versus staying at home does not exist.
Key for MAHM:
There are a large number of women who feel they would rather stay at home to look after their own children, but are not able to do so as there is insufficient support available.
