 Working Mums should Spend Every Penny On Childcare

High-flying women should spend every penny they've got on childcare, says one of Britain's leading female scientists.

Many women are held back by the "burden" of feeling that have to spend as much time as possible looking after their families.

Professor Uta Frith says women with careers should take advantage of childcare for the sake of their jobs.

She criticised the idea that women have to be able to do everything and said: 'I have one piece of advice... throw money at it.'

"Spend every penny you've got on getting proper childcare, because I'm really convinced that this is something that holds these high-flying women back," she told the Independent.

Women do not need to go down the path of juggling work and home commitments and can find alternative methods of both rearing a family and excelling in their chosen field, said Professor Frith.

"They think they have to be these stay-at-home mothers to some extent. There is a funny burden there... you carry it with you," she added.
