I am a housewife as of now so it's not personal experience.. but have noticed sad prejudices happening with many known friends and acquaintances who are working moms with kids...when I was working I noticed many of my colleagues facing such issue so wanted to share. I'm sure many of u have faced prejudices at the workplace. Examples: 1. My friend was pregnant and her project ended..she applied for internal job postings but all managers rejected her as "they didn't want to waste time training a person who was anyway going to go on maternity leave." 2. One more friend who was in 8th month of pregnancy and working in MNC requested for laptop and wfh as office location was shifted 15 km away from her home during pregnancy..they refused and after begging senior people they managed to give wfh just for 2 days a week. 3. One co worker went on maternity leave ..that time it was 3 months..after three months ended her manager started calling and asking when she z returning to work..she was Exclusively BFing her baby so she requested 3 months leave without pay..after that she requested just 1 month of work from home so she could feed her baby, wean her baby and introduce solid foods And arrange for proper help to look after her baby before rejoining work..her manager and team lead refused even though they had the capacity to grant wfh to her..she was otherwise a sincere resource..they insisted her to work 9-6.30 everyday without flexibility and take up extra responsibilities as well..as a new mom of 5 or 6 months baby it was difficult for her to commit to it hence they kicked her out of the project. 4. One lady couple of years senior to me used to come to office at sharp 9 am, finish all the work given to her and leave at 6pm ..she would not waste single minute and just take ten minutes for lunch and five minutes for coffee break..her male counterparts who would walk into office slowly around noon, waste 1 hour for lunch and 1 hour on coffee tea and smoke breaks and unaccounted time on casual net surfing used to make silly remarks on how she got to "leave early from office just because she is a lady" and how " ladies have it easy". They resented the fact that she was allowed to take certain late evening calls from home.. I feel many working mothers are unable to work and reach senior position because of pathetic attitude of managers and leads and co workers towards them.
