‘90s FAMILY : Women Say They’re Under Too Much Pressure

Most women, according to the 1995 Virginia Slim Opinion Poll, agree that there is too much pressure for women who are balancing work, marriage and family. The women say employers do not make it easy for women who have children to juggle motherhood and jobs. Then at home, men are not doing their share of the household chores and child care. Surprise, surprise.
