ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a report released by the Pew Research Center which revealed an increase in the number of women who are primary breadwinners in U.S. households. The report showed that women are either the sole or primary earners in more than 40 percent of total U.S. households with children under age 18. A major factor behind this trend is the rise of single motherhood in the country.
