Australian Working Moms Feel the Stress

A survey conducted by the University of South Australia’s Centre for Work & Life of 1,435 Australians found that while three-quarters of those polled said they were satisfied with their work-life balances, 72.5 percent of women with children reported often or always feeling rushed, according to The Australian [1]. Professor Barbara Pocock, head of the Centre, told the newspaper that women who work part-time reported feeling tremendous pressures. “Australian women have . . . used part-time work as their mechanism of choice,” Pocock said. “I suspect this leads to them having the worst of both worlds in terms of career advancement and time with their families.” (July 2007)
