It’s not like the good old days.

Now I’m not the kinda woman to want to be stuck at home and raise a family while my partner makes all the money. I thought I could do it all as I am a woman! But while reading my work terms and conditions I was surprised to see I’d only get 39 weeks of maternity pay! So before my baby was even a year old I’d be expected to be working my ass of for minimum wage while leaving my infant with a stranger! (I’m not pregnant!)

I know us girls  have equal rights, but we can’t be expected to have a family (if we want) and hold down a job to pay for the bundle of joy, I don’t think all the ladies who burnt their bras so we could have these equal rights really though it through..!

It seems us girls can’t have it all, we can’t be a stay at home mum as that doesn’t put food on the table or pay the bills, but should we really only focus on making money? Isn’t being a mother the most rewarding of jobs? I guess it’s because of all the femals who have children as they are too lazy to work that ruins it for those of us wh0 do wan’t it all.  Should working/single mothers get more right?…
