Like Mother, Like Daughter? How Career Women Influence Their Daughters' Ambition

Author(s): Jill Armstrong

Feminism | Mother/Daughter | Specifically for Girls | For Mothers

Does having a mother with a successful career benefit her daughters? Does it lead them to have higher aspirations for their own careers, and, if so, do those ambitions translate into career success? Like Mother, Like Daughter? looks at these questions and more, using case studies of women who are at the tops of their fields and their daughters. What Jill Armstrong finds is that while many of the daughters end up following the same career path as their mothers, that can't be traced to explicit mentoring, which turns out to be rare. She traces that reluctance to what she terms "quiet ambition" a tendency for women to downplay their aspirations and achievements.
