Abstract
One increasingly important category of workers is that of ‘worker-mothers’. Within the group there are important distinctions: worker-mothers returning to work after maternity or parental leave; worker-mothers who are female breadwinners; and worker-mothers who have opted for self-employment. Drawing on current research, the presentation discusses the characteristics of each group and the policy challenges they represent for government and employers in relation to gender equity.
