Abstract

This dissertation is concerned with the role that housework and childminding play in the lives of working women. The focus lies mainly in the compromises that are made in order for women to progress in their chosen career paths while achieving satisfaction in their personal lives. This dissertation analyses the steps taken to implement equality between men and women's conditions of work and evaluates the successes and limitations of these steps.

A survey was carried out by the author of this dissertation in February 2000. This survey found that Irish women currently face conflict between their work and home lives. The issues that frequently arise when analysing this
relationship are
- Household requirements
- Childcare
- The glass ceiling
- Atypical employment arrangements
