This Working Mum’s Epic Mic Drop Moment Is Magnificent and We Love to See It

This Working Mum’s Epic Mic Drop Moment Is Magnificent and We Love to See It

A working mum has highlighted the unconscious gender bias when it comes to parental responsibility which then resulted in the most glorious mic drop we’ve seen in a long time.

It began with Lucy Greenwood’s tweet about her daughter who had told her school to ring her dad, not her mum, because she was busy at work and would not be able to pick up. But the school still rang her mum.

It wasn’t long before someone came along and told her that this really shouldn’t be an issue and that she should take the call anyway, chiding the mother for not having her priorities right.

Others soon joined the discussion, arguing that sometimes you just can’t take the call if you are at work.

Are you ready for the mic drop? It’s a doozy!


This is just the sort of International Women’s Day content that we want to see!

Utterly fantastic.

Twitter agreed:

Just glorious.

  1. I am retired & a stay at home dad in regional NSW. 2km or less from the school/pre-school. Mum works in the nearby “city”, about 20km away. It has taken us years of discussion, formal & informal, to represent this 21st century situation. It isn’t even relevant to our children’s wishes, and causes great anxiety for my welfare when school/pre-school ring their Mum. It becomes infuriating, when there has obviously been no effort to phone my 2 preferred contact numbers. Perhaps it is an indicator of the administration staff’s age or gender that could be addressed by employing some men for the school’s administration teams. But in this century a Departmental policy shouldn’t be necessary to filter the thought processes of Government employees, when their employment selection criteria already accounts for Equal Employment Opportunity.
