Prevalent attitudes militateagainst this, such as stereotyping, opposition by management to womenworkers taking career breaks which is an absolute necessity for somecareerminded mothers but to management suggests lack of commitment andmaledominated social concepts one of the boys. It isconcluded that NHS management must show greater flexibility inaddressing the problems of women, their most valuable resource, beforemuch needed recognition of womens right to be treated fairly can beachieved.
