Norway: Women scales work to care for their children

Posted by African Press International on April 12, 2007

Women take on the responsibility for caring for handicapped children. Six out of ten handicapped children have a mother who either scales down their workload or opts to stay at home to provide care, according to figures from Norwegian Social Research (NOVA).

Women make the choice to stay home and care for handicapped children because men still tend to earn most, NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) reports.

Anita Tymi, from the Norwegian Federation for the Handicapped (NFU), said that assistance programs had to be improved in order to give women the possibility to work.
