The Best Places For US Women to Have a Career and Kids

Some places are more welcoming to women with a juggle than others. According to ForbesWoman, New York is the best place for women who have a career and kids based on an assessment of earnings, unemployment rates, cost of living, crime, access to health and day care, per pupil spending and number of parks.

In the first annual list of the Best Cities for Working Mothers, Austin ranks as number two behind NYC. ForbesWoman points out that while the two cities offer something different for working moms, both cities offer good schools, lots of park space, and plentiful childcare options.
