Harvard Business School conducted some research, finding that there are significant benefits for children with mothers who work outside of the home.

“The study found daughters of working mothers went to school longer, were more likely to have a job in a supervisory role, and earned more money — 23% more compared to their peers who were raised by stay-at-home mothers.” // msn.com

The sons also benefited, with a higher tendency to pitch in with chores and childcare. It was all based on the theory of role modeling, as a way of signaling what’s appropriate in terms of behavior and activities.
