According to a recent Pew report, the stereotype of the rich, white, pampered stay-at-home-mom of the mommy wars infamy is actually complete horse shit.
That’s right, according to new research, stay-at-home-moms are much more likely to be young, poor, non-white and/or immigrants lacking college degrees than they are to be part of the opt-out crowd. As a matter of fact, a large chunk of “stay-at-home-moms” aren’t even home by choice. They’re just unemployed and largely disenfranchised.
It appears the mommy wars are manufactured.
