Can we have it all? Return to the housewife


Another reason for this growing trend could be that the Modern Woman realizes that she can’t ‘have it all’. In theory being a high flying career woman, having a family, a vibrant social life and looking fabulous all sounds great, but it seems that reality has hit this generation of women hard, and we are finding it increasingly difficult to balance everything.

When asked if ‘women can have it all?’ on the social networking site Mumsnet, the overriding response was ‘no’. 

One mother said: ‘No, we cannot have it all. There aren’t enough hours in the day. You just have to choose the best combination of options that you can. Something always has to give.’
