“career women”

by rantywoman

Considering I’m not a fan of the 40 hour workweek, this is fascinating:

A recent study by the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology Canada reports that when women were asked about their decision to conceive their first child, 97 percent said that had been waiting to be in a “secure relationship” before having children. Less than 30 percent cited “career goals” as being “very important” to the decision. A similar study, in Australia’s Journal of Population Health, reports that childless women in their thirties want to have children, but cannot due to reasons “beyond their control.” Specific reasons cited include: “not having a partner, not having a stable relationship, or with a partner that did not want children.”
