Violence against the Working Mother



March 1, 2010 - Working mothers in the public sphere are under extreme pressure from society due to their varied roles as mothers, wives and professionals.  As a result of varied functions, working mothers endure many forms of violence that drastically impact their mental and reproductive health.  In addition, their diminished capacity to be fully functional affects the entire family and frustrates upward mobility.  The panelists analyzed and discussed the plight of the working mother in this regard.  In order to adequately expose the suffering of the working mother, the panel examined a case study from Morocco.  Additionally, observations from the United States were discussed, as were similarities to the treatment of widowed women.
