No Children= Success?

Does motherhood compromise success? (Image found on the Whatnot at Work blog)

Hey !

This is Sabrina, I listened to one of my favorite Youtube personalities and he mentioned a Good Morning America story about pay equality,child rearing and the connection to success. As a recent graduate, the whole reason why I went to college, completed internships, joined Linked In , and keep up on the latest pr/marketing news is to be a better professional. If I decide to become a mother, would all of my efforts be in vain?

I may want to become a parent one day, and although it may come with sacrifices, my ability to “clime the ladder” should not be one of them. But I guess this study furthers the argument- “Can women have it all?”

Hmm this is something to think about. But it is also something we should bring awareness to and try to fight. Mothers are workers and fathers are workers too, thus should have equal pay for equal work.

However, what about women who decide to drop out of work after having kids, can there be a transition to get them back into the working world without the huge penalty?

The GMA report explores why childless women and mothers have a success and pay discrepancy.

OK readers, thanks for comming on my page. Comment. Share your thoughts on this topic. Are there any ambitious career women who want to have children? Or are there mothers who aspire to become career women?
