The role of women in society is radically changing in most Western countries. Vast numbers of women are beginning to work full‐time and to aspire to climb the same “organisational ladders” as their male counterparts. Indeed, the latest figures from the US Department of Labor indicate that the “typical American family” with a working husband, a homemaker wife, and two children now makes up only seven per cent of all US families. In addition, whereas in 1960 31 per cent of all married women in the US were working, as were 19 per cent of women with children under six, by 1975 the comparable figures were substantially higher at 44 and 37 per cent respectively.
