For women,it's tough to balance high profile job with family

Top job and family can't go hand-in-hand for women: Expert


London, Dec 21 (ANI): A sociologist at the London School Of Economics has claimed that women should forget about trying to work at a top job and manage their families well at the same time.

Dr Catherine Hakim said that women with high- powered careers rarely see their partner or kids and end up with only "nominal" families.

Her report has called for the Government to drop plans to give fathers more time off and cutting down flexible working hours for women or giving them more places for women on company boards.

Hakim said it is a "waste of time" fretting about that small difference and said any pay gap that might appear is due to women's lifestyle choices.

"In Britain, half of all women in senior positions are child-free and a lot more have nominal families with a single child. They sub-contract out the work of caring for them to other women," the Daily Star quoted Hakim as saying.

"Equal opportunities policies have succeeded in giving equal access for women to the labour market.

"People are confusing equal opportunities with equal outcomes, and there is little popular support for the kind of social engineering being demanded by feminists and legislators." (ANI)

Hi Roshni, 


Your thread have normally put forwards interesting discussions. But they have been among your respondents.

Please don't mind, why do you have to run away from the fundamental questions?

You open a thread, your points  categorically get smashed,  Then run away to open another thread . There also try to adnasum repeat your previous points with a different newspaper item.


We hope to get some enlightenment out of your threads. 

Only Chewing information without assimilation is actually a wastage of ones intellectual capabilities. 

You are well within your democratic rights to do so.

But is it  required ? Do you believe that some silly talks, oft repeated in a shrill voice are substitute  of grey matter?

There is nothing wrong in posting newspaper items, we get these items at one place, and it saves our time.

As u have rightly said that " You are well within your democratic rights to do so." Then what is your problem?

If it does not suits u then better u refrain,and it is neither necessary nor mandatory to go thru all the thread and reply.
