Every Mother's Dilemma
Oprah reveals surprising poll results.
 
It's an issue that strikes at the hearts of millions of American women: Can you be a great mother and a successful career woman? Is it possible for women to have it all?

In an Oprah.com poll, more than 15,000 women—both stay-at-home and working moms—opened up about their feelings on motherhood.

Two-thirds of the working moms who responded said they would quit work and stay home with their kids if they could. More than 90 percent said they work for financial reasons.

Read all the results from the poll.

Among the stay-at-home moms, more than one-third wished they worked outside the home.
