WomenWithChildren

Catherine Rampell tries to understand why educated women today are more likely to have children than educated women in the 1990s:

Perhaps this has something to do with Claudia Goldin’s findings that some of the fields that require the most educational investment upfront like pediatrics, or veterinary medicine also happen to be fields whose work schedules allow for a healthy work-family balance. High-achieving women who want children may be discovering this, and making their career choices accordingly.

Are there other explanations for why the country’s most educated women are more likely to have children today than they were in the 1990s?
