Discrimination against mothers and child-free women of child-bearing age

One of the issues that comes up when women are trying to decide whether to have children on not is the affect of having children on their careers. Unfortunately, women with young children are some of the most discriminated aganist in the workplace. At least in the UK, it is illegal to ask at interview about whether a woman has children or not. But in the US, this is perfectly legal in most states.

And, as this article points out, 'mother profiling' can affect women of child-bearing age who have no intention of having children. So it affects both women with children and women who wish to be childfree.
