Amanda Loumansky, Sue Goodman and Sue Jackson argue that the more conventional way of writing ‘work-life’ balance fails to recognise gendered patterns: ‘work’, for women in particular, includes work in the home as well as in the workplace, and ‘life’ may leave little room for personal interests to develop.
