Today sees the publication of Christine Armstrong’s brilliant and explosive book, The Mother of All Jobs. In it, Christine exposes the “myth” of having it all; she interviewed women in high-powered or executive jobs anonymously and exposes the lies, basically, that they tell about what it takes to hold down a job and have a family.
They will tell us that it’s all about being organised, leaning in, “having a great nanny”, but the truth is that it’s pretty much a shitshow for everyone because the culture in this country is so unbelievably hostile to working mothers.
More honesty would mean things might change – but who wants to be first to put their hands up?
Anyway here is Christine to tell us more.
