Gordon, my Mom coordinated the alumni department for a small art college in the 70s and was paid less than the males she was in charge of. Plus she hosted all weekend fundraisers for no pay. My father was self-employed and but work was occasionally slow so my Mother’s job was not a frill nor did she deserve other people making decisions for her–culturally accepted or not. I think the “policy” of no daycare has become a HABIT because it hurts people who go unnoticed–kids and women.
