The Sandwich Generation: Women, Work, and Dealing with the Double Burden of Care Responsibilities (Currently Filled)

Various anecdotal evidence suggest the emergence of a "sandwich generation" in Brunei, whose members provide care for both their children or grandchildren, and their elderly parents, while pursuing paid work and a career. In the main, the experiences of women in the sandwich generation are undocumented. While outsourcing care responsibilities to a nanny, au pair, or daycare facility may be a viable strategy for some mothers, it is not a universal experience for all women wishing to earn a living.
