Even with Texas ranked 3rd for quality of daycare, the ratio of female to male executives is one variable that creates particular obstacles for mothers who choose to work full-time simply due to the differences in how women perform tasks as opposed to men.

According to the analysis by WalletHub, Texas is the 3rd worst state for "work-life balance" for working moms. "Work-life balance" takes into consideration the state's parental leave laws, the average number of hours worked per week, and women's average commute time.
