a Mother’s Work Meme

Sex Pistols

A thought: Our society doesn’t value or support mothers as well as it could.

Brits pay more for childcare than anywhere else in the world, this combined with flimsy legislation to support mothers, is either discouraging many of us from returning to work or making life extremely tough.

I’ve blogged a couple of times on this issue, as has Pret-A-Mummy.  So, we’ve decided we’d like to team up and make a bit more noise in the blogosphere about it. Step one is to start a meme. So here it is:

A Mother’s Work Meme

Please post the rules
Answer the questions in as much or as little detail as suits you
Leave a comment on mother.wife.me so we can keep track of the meme
Tag 3 people and link to them on your blog
Let them know you tagged them
Tweet loudly about taking part (well ok, that isn’t a rule, but how about if we start a hashtag - #amothersworkmeme)

1.  Did you work before becoming a mum?
2.  What is your current situation?
3.  Freestyle – got your own point you’d like to get across on this issue? Here’s your chance…

This meme has been running for just four weeks and we've already had more than 25 meme responses, that are well worth a read. You can find links to them all under this post on mother.wife.me

And, most importantly…. if you fancy taking part in this meme... you're tagged!
