Question:Did you know 60% of mothers work outside the home?

It's an American statistic, not a global one, but with today’s cost of living, dual-income families are more popular than ever. In fact, about 60% of all mothers work outside the home.

That's in contrast to the 1950s and early-1960s, when it was uncommon for women with children under the age of six to work outside the home.

Talk about change!

Interesting, isn't it, that it's what the majority does yet it's still classified as "odd" behavior. Why is it that women always have to choose work or family?
