ARGH!

Apparently, "bosses weigh up pregnancy risk" prior to employing someone, and only 5% would employ someone if they knew that they were already pregnant.

At the moment, I am too angry to blog about this (although its hardly news, it still makes me mad). Hopefully later I'll have calmed down enough to write something sensible.

This is funny, during my Politics A Level we spent all of 1 lesson on feminism at which a mostly male class argued women are no longer discriminated against. Women of ´breeding age´ are openly discriminated against and everyone seems to argue ´well it´s legit that companies wouldnt want to lose money hiring women who turn out to be a liability´. Aparently we should all conserve our engergies, stay at home and live a handmaiden-esqu existence.
