Metro examines a recent U.S. survey that shows more working moms are returning to the homestead.
For years, the majority of women have chosen to work rather than stay at home. But according to data, the trend seems to be reversing.
On average, 54% of mothers across the globe are employed.
Sweden and Netherlands have the highest share of working moms (76%), Belgium has 66%, and the United States has the lowest percentage of working mothers at 61%.
