How do we ensure women aren’t penalised for becoming parents?
There’s a moment of realisation that comes to all parent’s post-baby: the flash back to those thoughts we all have that ‘having a baby won’t change us’. I wasn’t going to let my kids watch TV, eat sweets or be ‘that mum’ who cracks open a snack mid shop. Then it came, that thought at the check-out as I handed over an empty pack to the woman with a knowing smile: some elements of parenting are simply not understood until they are lived. The biggest of them all is how on earth we balance parenting and work.
Flexible working: can Wales lead the world in gender equality?
With brilliant support and hard work from Anna Whitehouse (aka Mother Pukka) we got Wales talking about flexible working with our #flexappeal flashmob

Unaffordable childcare and a lack of flexible employment are the bricks and mortar of the wall that stop mothers returning to work.
