Adele HorinNew study? Really? Would this be the same study mentioned back in December 2008 in The Age?

THE Howard government's family policies left a legacy of stressed, overworked parents and set gender equity back a decade, a new study shows.
A study by Lyn Craig and Killian Mullan, of the Social Policy Research Centre at the University of NSW, shows the ascendancy of the family model promoted by the former prime minister: a father in full-time work and a mother in part-time work, depicted in his speeches as "the policeman and the part-time sales assistant".
Mums still bear brunt of houseworkAdele Horin must be really into being green, since she seems to be rather good at recycling old articles.

Dr Craig, with colleague Dr Killian Mullan, will present the findings at an international conference of time-use researchers, starting at the Wesley Conference Centre in Sydney today.
Crikey, The Age used that December article twice as well - once in the Lifestyle section and once in Essential Baby. That's extra, extra recycling.
About the only difference between the latest article and the previous ones is that Doctors Craig and Mullan are no longer Doctors in the most recent incantation. They are plain old Lyn and Killian. Isn't it patronising and demeaning to strip women of their hard-earned titles like that?
I wonder what Barbara Boxer would make of that discourtesy?
