I have to admit to missing the TV show The Good Wife. If you haven’t seen it, the show  stars Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick who assumes full responsibility for the financial well being of her family after her husband’s sex and political corruption scandal lands him in jail by entering a large law firm and restarting her original career as a defense attorney.

In many ways it is a ridiculous show but… I love the fact its about law and also has some older women characters struggling with life as well as legal issues.

Am I the only fan out there?

Stay-at-home mums did not fare much better – 40 per cent experienced negativity about their decision not to work.
