Motherhood leads to a definite bias in employment for women seeking a job in traditionally male settings (Heilman & Okimoto, 2008). In general, parenting alters the perspective in both men and women in terms of anticipated work focus, particularly creating expectations of undependability. There is an underlying assumption that the functions of mother and wife have relatively less stress, as they are natural roles, whereas the role of employee, being unnatural, is therefore highly demanding. This may question the ability of a woman to handle multiple roles without significant ill effects. There is a substantial rhetoric based on the relationship between many abnormal employments to numerous social vices such as drug addiction and juvenile delinquency (Barnett, 2004).
