"My Career Can Wait. I Just Want To be A Mum."


Virginia Tapscott describes herself as university-educated, career-oriented and ambitious. She also has four children under the age of six and she doesn’t want a career. Not right now. Not while her kids are little. She wants to stay home with them instead of doing paid work and she is sick of being judged for it.
