A CELEBRATION OF MOTHERS ACROSS THE WORLD

A CELEBRATION OF MOTHERS ACROSS THE WORLD

On Sunday it was Mother’s Day, not in the UK, but in many countries across the world including the USA, Canada, Australia, India, Japan, Germany, Italy and others.  We wrote a series of blogs on mothers in marketing in March to celebrate UK Mother’s day (which you can read via the links below),  so this time we thought we’d take a slightly different stance and celebrate all the stay-at-home mothers around the world.

I always correct a mother when she tells me, “I don’t work”, or when she says, “I’m just a stay-at home mum.”  Firstly, a mother DOES work, 24/7, and displays a huge amount of physical and mental strength to do the job.  Secondly, there’s absolutely no ‘JUST’, no need to be apologetic about making a decision to stay at home.  What’s important is that the principles of equality (opportunity, recognition, rewards) should apply whether a mother chooses to stay at home and work (unpaid) or if she decides to go back to work outside the home (paid).
