Welcome to Her Second Shift

Her Second Shift is a personal blog that discusses the demanding and vital aspects of a Mum balancing work, family and social life. It was inspired by “The Second Shift”, a non-fiction book from 1989. The book highlights the obstacles women face when working full-time and are mainly responsible for raising children, as well as the disparity of leisure time between mothers and fathers.

About Me

Hi there! My name is Liss Rawson and I am the founder and creator of Her Second Shift. In addition to running my website, I work full-time for the State Government as a Workplace Trainer. When I’m not working, I am a proud mother to two-year-old identical twins named Levi and Tate, a wife to Bryce Ruthven, and a proud dog mum to a two-year-old border collie named Sonny. Our family resides in the peaceful Mornington Peninsula region of Victoria, Australia, where we enjoy a relaxed and modest lifestyle.

My Aim

My goal is to build a community of women who can share their experiences, learn from each other, and find relatable content and encouragement in managing multiple responsibilities. I’ll bring you a wealth of resources, from practical tips to personal stories and professional advice from experts in their field. I’ll cover a variety of topics such as time management, career advancement, self-care, and tips to help you excel in both your personal and professional life.
