Zoe Young, author of Women’s Work: How Mothers Manage Flexible Working in Careers and Family Life speaks to Jess Miles about work-life balance being an unattainable dream and how choice is an illusion for professional mothers.

They discuss how policy and organisation change can make flexible working arrangements ‘work’ for women and families, and for society more broadly.
