(New York, NY) American women are now the top earners in nearly half of all households with children.
In four out of ten families with children, the woman is the sole or primary person responsible for bringing in a salary for the family.
A new study by Working Mother Media shows most women are still reluctant to take on this role and be happy.
It found only 29% of mothers said they wanted the role of primary breadwinner.
71% of women said they fell into the role by circumstance.
