She says some really interesting things about equality and the perception of mothers who make. Do come and have a look.

A small extract:

'When talking about success, we need to define what we mean by that. The unequal society is not due to motherhood, it depends on deeply established power structures. I would never blame mothers or children but the system/the society where motherhood prevents success, whatever we mean by that. '
