Leading from home: will extensive remote working facilitate or frustrate women's workplace advancement

With the new model of work providing greater opportunities than ever for home working, what will the impact of this be on women's employment. Will home working become the new 'women's work' with all the negatives that can come with that as was the case with part-time work? Given the choice will more women choose jobs that allow them to work at home with men opting to be present in the office (and thus more visible for opportunities)? Or will men's recent experiences around their children mean that they do start to take more responsibility for childrearing and/or decide that they don't want to be full-time in the office.
