I'll be watching you, Snowbooks

Here's an interesting article (to me, at least, the newly aware) about how pregnant women and mothers are still subject to discrimination. I hope Snowbooks isn't going to be horrible to me. You can imagine the conversation: Me (as pregnant lady): So, can I have some time off to have a baby? I promise I'll be back at work in six weeks or so, and I'll check my email and everything. And can I have my proper job back afterwards? Me (as Snowbooks boss): No. Me (PL): Oh. But what about my rights? Me (SB): Well you can take me to tribunal but you'll look a bit stupid, talking to yourself. Me (PL): Sigh. Makes me appreciate being my own boss even more. God, who'd ever work for someone if they could help it?


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
