Equal Opportunity for Idealized Employees » Sociological Images

Sociologists have observed that employment in the U.S. is largely structured around an assumption that the worker has no family responsibilities. The ideas that an employee should be able to work during non-school hours, stay late when needed, take off time for their own illness but never anyone else’s, for example, all presume that the workers have either no children or someone else taking care of children for them.

Most jobs, then, are not designed to be compatible with family responsibilities. Since most people doing primary child care are women, this hurts mothers disproportionately. Mothers have a more difficult time being the “perfect employee” and also face discrimination from employers. This translates into some telling numbers. Women make about 69% of what men make (not controlling for type of occupation), but most of this disadvantage is related to parental status, not sex. Women without children make 90% of what men make, while mothers make 66%. Ann Crittenden’s book, The Price of Motherhood, lays out these numbers starkly.

A safety plan of domestic violence is a tool designed to help a victim consider options and develop a plan of action when living in an abusive relationship. Safety planning should always be done without the abuser’s knowledge and should include the children when this is possible
