Employers’ attitudes

  • Mavis Maclean
Part of the Women in Society book series (WOSO)


There is no reason why women should be financially dependent on men after divorce, any more than men should expect domestic support from their ex-wives after divorce. Leaving aside child support, women should earn their own living. However, on marriage and child-bearing, women forgo the straightforward career path on which they would accumulate experience, skills and pension entitlements. Insead, after having children, they move in and out of full-time and part-time jobs, typically losing three years’ pay altogether, followed by 4 years’ part-time employment with lack of promotion and pension rights.
