A really fascinating article about German women and how societal traditions and institutions are changing to allow more mothers to work.

Here's an interesting statistic from the article:

Today, 66 percent of German women work. But for those with children under 3, that figure plunges to 32 percent. Only 14 percent of women with one child resume full-time work and only 6 percent of those with two. One result: a birthrate of 1.38 children per woman.
