work (one's) backside off

(redirected from works her backside off)

work (one's) backside off

To work really hard (on or at something). I know you thought it was just a silly New Year's resolution, but I've been working my backside off at the gym! Sally and Jim work their backsides off when we hold our consumer conference each year. I don't know what I'd do without them!

But I don't see why a woman who works her backside off, can afford a child and may not find the right partner in her child-bearing years should be deprived the opportunity of exploring this venture.
