Priceless. Hmm, does this story tell us anything we didn’t already know about gender-typical work centredness? And did the world-renowned sociologist Dr Catherine Hakim possibly have something to say on the subject in 2000?
On the most recent International Women’s Day – March something-or-other – I had the pleasure of appearing on Sky News with two women, talking on the topic, ‘Can you be a successful working Mum?’ Kay Burley, the presenter, along with a feminist guest, were both examples of the one in seven women who are work-centred, both seemingly incapable (in common with almost all such women) of understanding that six in seven women are different. The video is here (18:25). Ms Burley appeared a little startled when I described her presenting her personal experience as ‘pathetic’, I don’t know why.
