Excerpt: “This is about self-identity, not insecurity,” says Dr Jana Bowden-Everson, a senior lecturer in marketing at Macquarie University. “Today's woman has many roles. She is a mother, homekeeper, employee, among many, and she wants to see herself as someone who can lead a fast-paced, highly mobile, massively organised, full life.
