How Far We've Come

Sometimes when interviewing a client for their Life Story book, we are struck by just how much has changed in the span of time that our clients have lived - mostly for the good.

In this case, our client, a motivated and educated woman, spoke of the struggles she faced looking for work in an era of blatant gender discrimination.

Here's how she described it:

'I went looking around for work, and that's when I found discrimination against women with children. I would start looking for jobs, and they would ask me, "Who's going to take care of your children? We don't think it's going to work out."

I thought, why are they saying this? I do have somebody there. I had one job that told me I couldn't come back because I had a child.'

Can you imagine?
