Beliefs about Maternal Employment

(p.147) Chapter Eight Beliefs about Maternal Employment
Dividing the Domestic
Maria Charles, Erin Cech
Stanford University Press

This chapter describes the variability in women's attitudes toward maternal employment across 32 industrial, transitional, and developing countries and territories. Drawing on surveys for these countries, this chapter demonstrates the cross-national variation in public opinion regarding maternal employment. Exploring this variability can help contextualize the ideologies of motherhood and can provide insights on the ideals of full-time maternal care for children in the home.

Keywords:   maternal employment, cross-national variation, public opinion, motherhood, maternal care
