Increased workplace flexibility has led to the rise of ?Undercover Moms?. These working women juggle work and family responsibilities, often without others in the community realizing. Most of these women keep their working life a secret to avoid criticism from those who think that mothers should stay home. Increases in workplace flexibility, such as the ability to work from home, have made it easier to achieve a work-life balance.
