The researchers based their analyses on responses collected from the 20 surveys.
They categorized the countries by their attitudes toward gender equality, both at home and in the workplace.
The data also showed that while being raised by a working mother had no apparent effect on men's relative wages, women raised by working moms had higher incomes than women whose moms stayed at home full time.
The one exception: women who reported conservative attitudes toward gender equality.
We wanted to see how that played out." The research team aimed to find out whether growing up with a working mom influenced several factors, including employment, supervisory responsibility, earnings, allocation of household work, and care for family members.
Survey respondents included 13,326 women and 18,152 men from 24 developed nations.
However, "When we segmented just for people who have children at home, we found that women who are raised by a working mom actually spend more time with their kids," Mc Ginn says, adding that this includes women who grew up to become working moms themselves.
"There's a lot of parental guilt about having both parents working outside the home," Mc Ginn says.
"Growing up, what was being modeled for sons was the idea that you share the work at home," Mc Ginn says.
Women spent about the same amount of time caring for family members, regardless of whether their moms worked outside the home.
