|In Chapter 5 the author present the key results of two focus group discussions (one with women with higher educational attainment and one with women with lower educational attainment) which were organized in March 2013 with employed women with pre-school children living in Brno. The analysis primarily focuses on how these women manage to reconcile their gainful employment with their care responsibilities. After an overall outline of the method of focus group discussions, the presentation of the results begins with how meaningfully the respondents perceive their employment. The chapter then moves on to their reconciling strategies and based on that analyses their decision making on both their labour market integration as well as their care arrangements.
