I feel like I do a lot of extra and it's important for my mental health and my family that I drawer the line somewhere.

And this thread is a prime example of why we still need feminism.

God, this is depressing. I have been reading this for a few days as I'm about to return to work myself.
I must say, I am very lucky from the standpoint that my employer offers flexible work arrangements. I am about to go back full-time while DH takes him parental leave, and then I'll go 3 days per week. I should be able to do this indefinitely, however I know I was passed up for promotion while on leave, and it's not likely until I am back in the game full time.
What is stressing me out, is that we are planning to move overseas next year. While I will be with the same company (hopefully) I've been with for 11+ years, it's an entirely new network. If we didn't plan to keep our home here, and buy another, I'd probably tag out of the game for a while, but I'm too scared to financially.

I'm just wondering for those who have been discriminated against were you in the union? If so they couldn't help?
As with @Wise Enough my workplace did something similar to one of my colleagues prior to me, (I was only the second one pregnant in our new organisation), I was in the union though, unlike them, and promptly was returned to my current shifts in my pre pregnancy role. Since then they know better than to try that again.
Yes we need feminism but also we need unions too...

For my personal circumstances I wouldn't say my career is ruined but it is seriously stalled and the males working full time in my role are getting promoted and me having two mat leaves and on fractional appointment is going absolutely nowhere. I'm also studying to help climb the ladder but again the degree that is taking the full time males 3 years to complete will end up taking me at least 5. So after having 2 kids my career will end up stalling for about 7 or 8 years and there is much more likelihood of gaining momentum again if I can return full time but with 2 kids including one of them under 2 years I don't think I can manage that for a while yet :-(
My sister is in a career that demands massive hours and lots of travel. She is wanting to start a family but truly believes it will be the end of her career.
