While motherhood is celebrated in various cultures around the world, including in Lebanon, it remains a significant barrier to women’s equal participation in the labor force. This consequently prevents them from becoming “leaders” in their work, either as managers or directors. Using Finland as a case study, this article examines the relationship between motherhood and women’s leadership roles in the workplace in Lebanon. The paper concludes with several recommendations for gender equitable polices that can support mothers in the workplace.
