The question of how women balance work and child care is a topic of intense debate worldwide. In honor of International Women's Day on March 8, <b><a href="http://www.rferl.org/content/womens-day-working-mothers/24921988.html">we look at the lives</a></b> of working mothers in Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Montenegro, Iraq, Ukraine, Tatarstan, and the Czech Republic. In this gallery, we spend a day with Roya Rafiyeva, a journalist living in Baku, and her family.
