Because We're Worth it: A 'where to from Here' for Today's Working Mother
By Gill South

Every day women make decisions about whether to be home full-time for their families or to go out - or set up at home - to work. For many couples, it is essential that both contribute to the household income, but for working mothers the situation is by no means ideal. With still-negligible help with childcare costs from the government, it can seem crazy to work when you are barely breaking even. But there is a strong argument for hanging in there and continuing your career after children or retraining and starting something new. Because We're Worth It openly discusses the challenges of being a working mother, giving the faint-at-heart some reinforcement when they need it most and the tools to make it better for all. Journalist Gill South retells the stories of a variety of contemporary working mothers - their triumphs and frustrations and good and bad days. She also looks at the role working mothers play in the community, and above all encourages women to celebrate what they do and to stop feeling guilty.

Gill South has been a business journalist for the past 20 years. She spent 12 years working in the UK for various magazines and national newspapers, including The Scotsman and Financial Times, then moved to Pennsylvania with her husband and started a family. On her return to New Zealand in 2004 Gill worked as Business Editor for the Herald on Sunday before going freelance in 2006. Gill is married with two young children and her aim is to write for working mothers, empowering them in whatever they choose to do.
