The Importance of Gender Equity in Parental Leave
A PAID LEAVE report, crafted by 14 experts from both liberal and conservative backgrounds, calls for eight paid weeks off for both moms AND dads!
The report states"any paid leave policy should apply to both mothers and fathers so that both parents can be equally engaged in bringing up their children and bonding with them at the time of birth." This is important because it insists that fathers are included. The unequivocal embrace of equality finally acknowledges the changes in work and family responsibilities that are already old news to young parents everywhere.
