Women still have to bear the bulk of childcaring responsibilities, which proves an insuperable obstacle to entry into the labour market for those mothers on very low incomes. It is not surprising that they seek state support. If the Government does not want mothers to depend on the state, it should provide national childcare facilities, so that they can go out to work. If it wants women to live in stable relationships with men, it should provide proper resources to tackle the appalling damage wrought by domestic violence and sexual abuse in our society.
