The article focuses on a report from the Families and Work Institute which claims that working mothers are good mothers. There has been an 80 percent increase in the percentage of women who believe that a mother who works outside the home can have just as good a relationship with her children as a mother who does not work from 1977 to 2008. Great acceptance of working mothers was also shown by both men and women who grew up with employed mothers.
