This does not enhance the role of women in the workforce: Gemma Weir:

Proposals by global corporations like Apple and Google to freeze their female employees eggs so they can ‘choose to have children later in life’ has been criticised by Workers Party representative Gemma Weir.

“These type of multi-national corporations  are no longer satisfied controlling the means of production and are now intend on controlling reproduction as well”, she said.

“This type of initiative does nothing to improve or enhance the role of women in the workplace. On the contrary it turns pregnancy into an act of disloyalty to your employer”, added Gemma

“Freezing employees eggs will not advance the position of women in the work place. On the other hand, equal pay, equal opportunity, child care support and a recognition that if you want to have customers for your products and a future work force to employ, someone better have some children – and supporting them to do it is the best approach for everyone”, Gemma concluded
