Study reveals 40% graduate women childless by 35
A groundbreaking new study has shown that, while an increasing number of women may be getting good careers, many are also missing out on parenting.
Researchers at the Centre for Longitudinal Studies, based at the Institute of Education in London, studied the lives of approximately 5,000 women and found that the number of highly educated women who also start families has fallen drastically in the past decade.
The study found that a third of female graduates will never have children, while an even higher number (40 per cent) will put off having children until after they are 35, reports the Telegraph.
As for the reasons for this trend, experts believe that parenthood is clearly identified with unwanted disruption and change in the lives of many women who relish their independence, as well as a heightened risk of financial insecurity.
But what if you're not one of these women? A new Channel 4 documentary is currently speaking to women who would secretly like to become stay-at-home wives. For more information, please click here
