Macho Mums. Why working mothers should want more
Modern women expect all the things men have always taken for granted: a fulfilling career, an exciting sex life, sufficient leisure-time and a decent salary. Yet as soon as they have children, all this changes; they send their men out to do the bread-winning and cast their own career plans to the wind. Far from patriarchal society being at fault, it’s the women themselves who raise the bar too high. Yet the fact remains that women who want to build a career despite motherhood need unfailing energy, have to stand up to their colleagues and brave power-play and intrigues in the workplace as well as contending with husbands, families and friends. To top it all they need to stay attractive and mustn’t ever show any signs of weakness when it all gets too much. Just how all they’re supposed to pull all this off is explained by working mothers Binswanger and Althaus in this hands-on manual presented in a pragmatic yet amusing manner.
