This may not be the reference that you are searching for, but I recall a
survey of high school students published in the New York Times in 1995,
maybe even late 1995, that showed a sharp differentiation in the
expectations between girls and boys in the combination of work and
family. The girls all expected to work as well as have children, while
the boys expected or hoped that their wives would stay at home to care
for children. The survey I am referring to, then, would contradict the
one that you are thinking of. Sorry that I don't have a more specific
