Working mom

12 minutes

Working full-time and mothering small children – is the juggling act worth it?

Even as the Western world has moved further towards gender equality, studies show that working women in two-income households still take on a disproportionate amount of the parenting chores. Working Mom traces two mornings and one evening in the life of one such woman, Gill, as she cares for her two young boys. Chronicling Gill from the first waking minutes of her day to the last, the Canadian director Daniel Wilner shows in the most intimate way what a mother’s work at home really is – an endless fugue of exhaustion and magic.
