So goes the whole story. The basic premise here is "we are responding to a fundamental change in what women want". But, wait a minute, where is the evidence that this has changed - maybe some statistics on workforce participation, some solid social science survey, hell, even a well-conducted "pop" survey?
None, nada, not a word. The whole story is built on a premise - a very large premise - that it makes no attempt to justify or back up.
But it is worse than that: More than half of British women are currently working in a job for which they are overqualified, often because domestic responsibilities leave them too little time or energy to pursue more senior positions. "Often" - what does that mean? I could equally say - and would say - "often" women are stalled in their jobs because of male prejudice and discrimination, "often" all workers, men and women, are stalled in their careers for all sorts of reasons - from their boss not liking them to their inability to move location because of their children's schooling ...
Now I don't want to pick on these two particular journalists - they are only cogs in the wheel, and the stories products of the huge pressure to produce great headlines. But such a pity those headlines so often have no solid foundation whatsoever, and yet these are what give readers their view of the world, that guides their votes and their actions.
