Working and Mothering: A Study of 97 Career Women with Three or More Children

By Linda Gordon Kuzmack, George Salomon

American Jewish Committee (AJC), December 1980

This study seeks to identify the tensions and problems of mothers who work, and to explore how some women have coped with them. It summarizes the responses of 97 working mothers of three or more children, generally between the ages of 30 and 60 and who generally had children young and stayed home before returning to work. The study concludes that these women were both satisfied with their lives as working mothers and dissatisfied with the resources available to them in the Jewish community. They suggest ways to improve the offerings of the community to help encourage larger families.
