Reply to Be vocal at work about your child care obligations

This lights me on fire. I travel constantly for work, currently in Germany in fact. It never fails that I get asked constantly who is watching my children. I say my husband and everyone asks if he has help, like he isnโ€™t a parent in his own right. Once more when colleagues or my own mother speaks of me they talk of my children and how they are doing not my professional life and accomplishments. It is ridiculous and deep seated history that assumes mothers are the only suitable caregivers and should be home with their kids therefore we canโ€™t possibly be as dedicated to our jobs. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„
