if you’re feeling like the juggle of parenting while working is overwhelming, you are NOT alone. Host Amelia Phillips and executive director of The Parenthood Georgie Dent discuss the structural and societal framework that is stacked against parents. Georgie explains why these norms are not serving parents (women in particular) not serving the carers economy (who are paid pittance and leaving in droves) and ultimately not serving our children. They discuss the available solution and how we can start to shift what feels like an immovable mountain.
About the guest:
Georgie is a writer, commentator, mum of three and a passionate advocate for women and families. She’s a former lawyer, contributing editor at Women's Agenda and the best-selling author of Breaking Badly, her memoir about dealing with crippling anxiety.
She is now the Executive Director of The Parenthood, an independent not for profit organisation of over 72k parents/carers working together on key federal and state policies that will take enormous cultural, financial and emotional pressure off families.
