Abstract

Notes the recent media attention given to the way in which women are being wooed back to the workforce. Discusses job‐sharing, parity of pay, child care provision and deregulation of employment laws. Concludes that “flexibility” is, unfortunately, being offered to women for economic not altruistic or social reasons.
