Beware the Two Paulas

A single mother writes:
"Paula Bennett, Minister of Social Welfare and Paula Rebstock, head of the Welfare Working Group, are two women that working class women need to beware of. Their policies are not pro-women. The two Paulas are helping the white male capitalist class, and its National Government- to get rich at poor (including Maori and Pacific) women's expense. Paula Rebstock with her patronising views towards single parents, and how we need to "work"; is helping to provide an appearance of academic legitimacy to Paula Bennett's planned brutal assault upon us. Mothering is work and we should be valued and respected for this, and have a liveable income for ourselves and our families whether or not we are in paid employment."
