Campaign 2000 examines the factors that determine whether or not lone mothers decide to enter into or return to the workforce. It specifically analyses the relationship between reliable child care and lone mothers' attachment to the labour force.

Excerpt from the summary:

What determines whether or not lone mothers decide to enter into or return to the workforce? How do they weigh the interconnected issues of employment, child care and family life in arriving at a course of action? For those who do enter the paid workforce, what role does child care play in supporting their continued attachment to employment and helping them achieve increased responsibilities in their jobs? These are the main issues this study set out to explore, using first hand stories and experience of lone mother themselves.
