Abstract

Most women today, just like most men, are engaged in paid employment through much of their lives. Similarly, most women today, just like most men, are involved in family life with a partner and children during most of this same period in their lives (Gutek, 2001). This is the case for both working-class and middle-class families. The modal family form in the United States is the dual-earner family (Stebbins, 2001).
