The Best Places For Working Moms

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.

Wow, I would've never guess Pittsburgh, Pa would have been in there. I left that city for SF because there was barely any job opportunities.

Milwaukee made the list...interesting. It's actually a pretty good city for moms because it's kind of a "small town in a big city"...good schools, nice parks, etc.

that's really good to know actually. i'm here in NYC and i'm expecting - so it's nice to know that i do live in a city that's conducive to being a working mom

Did they look at good public schools or just good schools in general?

I love all of these lists! I'm always curious to see if my city (D.C.) made the list. I'm not surprised it didn't make this one; a lot of people here seem so career-focused that they aren't able to spend as much time with their families as they'd like.
