Letter: Mothers at work

Sir: The comment that mothers make rotten employees, always thinking about something other than work ("The benefits of bringing up baby on an old age pension", 27 September), is insulting to those mothers who often require the organisational skills of a chief executive of a multi- national company to manage their home and working lives. Women should not be condemned for their ability to "multi-task", a skill not acquired by many of their male counterparts, who, we are told, think about sex at least three times an hour. Does this make them rotten employees ?
