'We want as many women as can be to have challenging and demanding careers rather than having to fit a bit of work in around the edges,''Tony Abbott, Conserative leader . . . Leader of the Opposition (Sydney Morning Herald, 25th April 2012)
Even though I have chosen to work full time, I completely understand why women choose to remain at home and both sides of governments (Labor and the conversatives) needs to understand and recognise this and not expect that they will ever get full participation of women into the work force. They need to be respectful of women at home and see it as a valable contribution to society as much as people at work.
When governments talk about the economy they are referring to the money economy. Therefore they completely disgard the contribution that women at home make to their community that cannot be measured in terms of money.
But in the end, women such as you are not doing what you do for any government, you are doing this for your families and for our Lord. And that in the end is all that matters.
