Girls who grow up with working moms are more likely to have careers themselves and to have higher paying jobs in the future, according to a report in Fortune, citing study data. The research found that, “daughters of working mothers in the U.S. make about 23% more than daughters of stay-at-home mothers.”
This article is headlined — inaccurately, in my view — Girls with working moms fare better.
Shouldn’t the headline stay with the facts and say “Girls with working moms make more money” instead of “Girls with working moms fare better”?
- seems to reflect an inappropriately narrow obsession with money as the only metric for measuring life outcomes.
- misrepresents facts to promote an opinion, i.e., “working moms are good for society.”
