Suffice it to say that the evidence from both countries shows a rapid increase in the number of females entering the workforce over the past two or three decades. Moore (1996) states that ‘Insurmountable social and economic obstacles are put in the way of those who want both careers and families’. In contrast, Hakim suggests that two groups of women have emerged in the past 20 years – those that are career-oriented and those that are homecentred – and states that ‘Women prefer male bosses, reject sex equality in marriage and contentedly depend on men for money as they stay secondary earners in a relationship’.
