“The future is female” is a slogan gloriously illustrated in the real and raw accounts of Working Mums. This collection of short stories from working women across Australia is not a ‘how to’, rather a ‘how she’, offering insight for all parents.
Each woman featured tears apart any notion of the perfect mum, breaking down the unrealistic images of motherhood, one honest admission at a time. While no two journeys are the same, a universal theme of support, sisterhood and community is threaded throughout, as we are reminded of the discrimination faced by women when re-entering the workforce.
Inspiring tales of women propelled into innovation and entrepreneurship abound, defining the success of slowing down, making a difference, or creating a business. With the challenges placed on all of these working women in motherhood, they have triumphed—and all of their own accord.
