Work/ Career

I would be interested in knowing more about the nature of the work from home. Janis

When you refer to the "nature of the work from home"--I assume you are referring to something that I wrote. If, yes, than I was probably referring to the work that the majority of women do in the home--work that often times gets very little recognition. Like doing the dishes; grocery shopping; making doctors appointments for children (if there are any)--and other things that fall under the category of "housecare" and "childcare." This work gets overlooked--and therefore the only women who are recognized as "working" are those who are employed outside of the home.

I hope this helps--but if I am mis-reading your question, please let me know.
