Employment, mothering and family in Brunei: Patterns of continuity and change

posted on 2019-10-24, 02:04 authored by AZRINAH BINTI HAJI ABD RAHMAN
This thesis is an exploration of the lived experiences of employed mothers with young children in Brunei as the emerging career aspirations of these women intersect with their traditional roles as mothers and wives in dual-income families. This thesis contributes to knowledge of family, gender roles, mothering, childcare and paid employment in Brunei and Southeast Asia by exploring the challenges employed mothers face in navigating their family life in a landscape in which culture, religion and gender are intersecting forces shaping their everyday experiences.
