Abstract

The debate on gender equality in the workplace is based predominantly on evidence and anecdote related to the experience of women in the workplace. Dr Orgad’s research highlights the importance of complementing this with (1) the experience of women who, more often than not, are of less interest to workplaces: those women who have left their workplaces, specifically after having children; (2) understanding the neglected aspect of husbands’/partners’ influence on women’s careers and family ‘choices’; (3) examining what may be preventing women from returning to the workplace.
