Abstract

This study examines the determinants of women's return to work following the birth of their first child among white, black, and Mexican-origin women to test the general hypothesis that previous racial differentials - observed during the late 1960s and early 1970s - in employment of new mothers have disappeared with changes in overall employment patterns of women.
