Isn't it a good thing that those women's liberationists use their feminine mystique theories to combat these unfair and unfounded perceptions about moms?
Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man-The Big Lebowski
I find it hard to believe that moms are discriminated against for teaching positions.
When it comes to looking for a job, you have to know job-searching dos and don'ts. Whenever I hear people talk about how they can't find a job because of "the economy" or "because I'm a mom" or, "because I'm black" or whatever, I usually ask further questions and find out that they just don't know how to job search well.
Sadly I have to agree. In my 13 years of recruiting CEO's, etc. I've never been asked if a male candidates children (*1 or 5+*) would interfere with his ability to do the job. I'm regularly asked about a woman's children; situation; etc. Its a biase. Plain and simple.
I do not think employers should be allowed to ask any questions about one's children or family.
I think responding to a question like that in an *interview* would understandably leave the the interviewer with the wrong impression.
