This research looks at the effect employed active LDS mothers have on their daughters' future plans for education, career, marriage, and children. Mothers' educational level, type of employment, and daughters' attachment to the LDS church were taken into consideration. It was found that a majority of daughters are definite in their plans for education, career, marriage, and children regardless of the employment status of their mother. Daughters of employed LDS mothers are more definite in their plans for a career than daughters of unemployed LDS mothers. No effect was found for mothers' employment on daughters' future plans for college, marriage, and children. Mothers' type of employment also had no effect. Mothers' education, but not for career, marriage, or children. Mothers' employment had a greater effect on her daughters' future plans for a career than did the daughters' attachment to the LDS church.
