Abstract: The author’s case is detailed and convincing. The strategy of equality has not been a failure: it has been systematically undermined by successive governments with no real commitment to women’s rights. Nevertheless, there is scope to examine the premise of equality and to consider whether motherhood is experienced by Australian women as the ‘crunch’ because it is the principle expression of sexual difference, a difference that has not been accommodated in the labour market.
