Metrics details. Low-income urban working mothers face many challenges in their domestic, environmental, and working conditions that may affect their mental health. In India, a high prevalence of mental health disorders has been recorded in young women, but there has been little research to examine the factors that affect their mental health at home and work. Through a primarily qualitative approach, we studied the relationship between work, caring for family, spousal support, stress relief strategies and mental health amongst forty eight low-income working mothers residing in urban slums across Bangalore, India.
U.S. has world's highest rate of children living in single-parent households | Pew Research Center
Single parenthood is increasingly common in Western societies but only little is known about its long-term effects. We therefore studied life satisfaction among individuals ages 18—66 years who spent their entire childhood with a single mother, individuals who spent part of their childhood with both parents but then experienced parental separation, and 21, individuals who grew up with both parents. Individuals who grew up with a single mother for their entire childhood and to a lesser degree also individuals who experienced parental separation showed a small but persistent decrease in life satisfaction into old age controlling childhood socio-economic status. This decrease was partly mediated by worse adulthood living conditions related to socio-economic and educational success, physical health, social integration, and romantic relationship outcomes. No moderation by age, gender, and societal system where the childhood was spent i.

Of course, this does not mean that you shun risky but potentially rewarding asset classes like equities altogether.
In communities around the world where access to information might be restricted for any number of reasons—the United Nations estimates that half the world's population is not connected to the internet—in-person social networks can be a key source of connection and knowledge-sharing. But when access to these offline social circles is also restricted, the way it can be for women in strict patriarchal societies, the people with whom women do interact become all the more influential. Women in parts of rural India have only one or two peers in their districts, and even fewer close friends—social connections that are often restricted by the woman's mother-in-law, according to a first-of-its-kind study by a team of researchers that included Northeastern assistant professor Catalina Herrera-Almanza. While much research has been conducted on the role men husbands, fathers in patriarchal societies play in women 's health and reproduction, relatively little research has considered the role of mothers-in-law. The researchers say theirs is the first study to explore the influence of the mother-in-law in the formation of women's social networks, and how that role affects a woman's ability to obtain access to health and reproductive services.
