Here is an article about the CEO of Yahoo.
Yahoo has banned telecommuting at the company which effectively affects many mothers who signed the contract thinking it was flexible- and an advantage to having children (Telecommuting means working from home). Inevitably this change has affected more women than men.
Is that fair?
Should motherhood/single motherhood even be a consideration at a firm or company- should it not be all about the work qualification rather than their private life’s being a mother?
Nevertheless, many women have stood up and taken concern with this question as a particular issue towards women because they are more domesticated than men.
Do you think that is right?
Is it a concern worth noticing within work environments- basically, the subject matter here is whether women should be acknowledged as such, I.e women, or on the same basis as men.
Mayer’s decision sparked an outcry from working mothers and other companies in Silicon Valley who blasted the hypocrisy of her banning the action but allowing herself an in-office space for her child. […] she came under a firestorm following the revelation that the new mom had a nursery built for her new son just prior to announcing the rule.
