Study Finds Workplace Pressures Deter Nearly 50% of Female Techies From Having Children

A poll by UK online recruitment firm The IT Job Board found that 48.3 per cent of female IT professionals said their decision not to have children had been influenced by work-related issues.

Of the 31 per cent of women respondents with children, 70.4 per cent said they believed their choice to have a family had adversely affected their career.  Almost two fifths of women respondents with children would take a lower paid role at a company that offered childcare facilities, although only 12.2 per cent of people surveyed worked at organisations providing childcare.

Given the workplace and career stresses that often accompany the practice of law, are any readers familiar with any polls or studies posing similiar questions to women attorneys?
