Some women want to return to work ASAP after having children. Presumably these quotas are aimed at these women.

Others may want to stay home, but need to work for the money. What can/should be done for this group?

Should benefits be more generous to allow those who wish to stay at home to do so?

Is it better for society for women to raise their own children or have someone else do it for them?

If an employer has a male and a newly married equally qualified female applicant applying for the same job why should the employer choose the woman if there is a non zero chance of her needing to take maternity leave? Legislation prohibiting this seems to be legislating against human nature. Can it work? Surely the employer will fabricate a reason to hire the male.

What do you think of this link? I don’t necessarily agree, but it’s a legitimate viewpoint.
