Unfortunately, women continue to experience several basic sources of workplace impediments: role choice or role overload; sex-based and other wage discrimination; occupational sex segregation; and the underutilisation of their abilities (Giordano, 1995: 5). Despite discriminatory expectations and assumptions to the contrary, women can and do contribute effectively to our workplaces – when they are allowed to – even when they have a child with a chronic illness. However, the constant interference of family and caregiving responsibilities can hinder women’s career progression, decrease satisfaction with work, interfere with concentration on the job, as well as increase absenteeism and possibly employee turnover (Wentling, 1998: 18; Vickers and Wilkes, 2004).
However, it is Caring and Working as Work-Home Conﬂict 25 also recognised as a far more complex phenomenon that develops through the interaction of the person-environment process (Lazarus and Launier, 1978; Mitchell et al, 1988; Langan-Fox and Poole, 1995: 114). There is considerable evidence that psychological and social stressors do have negative effects on the physical and mental health of the worker, and employed women experience greater stress than both unemployed women and employed men (Jena, 1999: 75).
To overlook this fact is to miss a crucial truth, whether in clay, story, or science (Krieger, 1991: 89; cited in Sandelowski, 1994: 47). So, like Sandelowski, I refused to ‘refuse the art’, while doing my best to practice intellectual craftsmanship (Mills, 1959: 195) when writing and presenting the data. Celebrating, rather than refusing, the art permitted me to present these women’s lives in a manner that would get attention; that would get them a hearing so that something might be done. According to Cross (1990: 193), without this, I would have just remained a ‘fact grubber’ and a ‘rule follower’.
