The growing feminisation of our society has had a huge impact on the workplace, but it’s our families and our churches that are feeling it the most. ‘Having it all’ may be the dream of many twenty-first century women, but there are others who question whether it’s really what they want. Many conclude that it’s not. Not when our desire to be treated the same as men means we’re never really treated as women; not when our families are being run by highly competent, multi-tasking women, because the men have stopped competing with them and made a run for it; and not when our churches are great at drawing in women while the revolving door for men is as busy as ever.
