Letter: Labour pains of working mums (3)

December 15, 2000

Your article is one of the first I have read where an academic has gone into print on the very sensitive subject of whether women put in far more hours than men. If the government's transparency review can cast light on this matter then the results will be extremely interesting. I can tell you that a year ago I was working 55.5 hours a week but that I now do 48.5 hours and I am a man! So, on a poll of two, it is 1-0 to the women.
