ABSTRACT
The article reports on Patrice Buzzanell, a Purdue University communication and gender expert, claiming that women who work outside the home often use different terms than their stay-at-home counterparts in defining themselves as good mothers. He says middle-class women who choose to work outside the home often use criteria such as their skill at finding quality childcare and making daily arrangements for their children as ways to measure their motherly abilities. In an effort to construct the image that pursuing a career outside of the home is worthwhile, it seems as though these women focus on the differences of the working mother and the stay-at-home mother.
