Mothers -- Employment
The effect of mothers' employment on their children has been investigated repeatedly; however, there is little research on how motherhood affects womens' employment attitudes. The research being reported here addresses this question. Subjects consisted of 126 working pregnant women and a comparable group of 45 working non-pregnant women who completed four questionnaires soliciting measures of the following attitudes: job involvement, home role attitude, employment role attitude, and interaction strain. Modest support was found for the prediction that giving birth would affect mothers' attitudes. Job involvement was found to decline, and home role attitude was found to be less favorable after the birth of a child.
