Gender, Parenthood, and Work Hours of Physicians.
Grant, Linda; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n1 p39-49 Feb 1990
Data from 204 young physicians (147 men, 57 women) revealed that parenthood significantly reduced women's, but not men's, practice hours. No significant gender differences existed for nonparents. Gaps between ideal and actual practice hours were smaller for mothers than for other groups, suggesting that mothers were more satisfied than other groups with work-family balance. (Author/NB)
