Working moms — and workplaces — have changed a lot in recent years. According to findings from the Pew Research Center, among other changes, mothers are spending more time in the workforce today than in the past.

In 1965, mothers spent an average of nine hours a week on paid work time. Today, that average is up to around 25 hours a week. Furthermore, nearly seven-in-ten working moms in 2015 had children younger than 18. That’s compared to 1975 when fewer than half of all working mothers had children under the age of 18.
