WASHINGTON, Nov. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- While feminists are bemoaning the return of well-educated, fast-track women to their homes to raise their own children, many of today's women are unwilling to make the kind of trade-offs that previous generations of career women made when climbing the career ladder meant not having a husband or children.
Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, Director and Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute (the think tank for Concerned Women for America) said, "Both male and female professionals today rate personal and family goals higher than career goals. These findings indicate a profound shift of attitude in the workforce. Further, they reveal a partnership among parents that was lacking in previous generations where all the family efforts were concentrated on the husband/father's career."
Crouse added, "A wife's career success pales in comparison to a husband's attitudes in breaking the glass ceiling of home. A husband's beliefs about family, the value of marriage, desire for children and respect for traditional gender roles determines whether a wife reports happiness with the love and affection of her husband. This family fact may reveal more about the career choices being made by today's well-educated women than all the statistics and workplace data. In the final analysis, perhaps breaking the ceiling at home is more important to women than breaking the corporate ceilings."
