Work-Family Balance for Women at Midlife

The report, Women at Midlife and Beyond: A Glimpse into The Future, put out by the center for work and family at Boston College recently updated.  A couple of findings from the study were that concerns or stress regarding family and home negatively affect between one-fourth and one-half of employees.  Three-quarters of women age 35 and older reported that work was a means of making a living but less than one-fourth of those viewed work as providing them with personal fulfillment.
