SIM Ep 384 Chops 164: A history of working motherhood

In the first of this week's Chops, Hannah chats to Dr Helen McCarthy, historian and author of the fantastic new book Double Lives. They chat about the history of working motherhood, how society and feminism have viewed mums and work, and how working mums have viewed themselves. And, in the midst of the worst crisis in childcare in living memory, they ask what the future may hold for women who want to have kids and careers.
