If you know me at all, you'll know that THIS is right up my alley:
Help America's Mothers and Families Now!
There is a silent crisis in America. Mothers and families are in trouble. The wage gap between mothers and non-mothers is now greater than between women and men: One study found non-mothers earn 10% less than their male counterparts; mothers earn 27% less; and single mothers earn between 44% and 34% less.
This wage hit has a direct impact on families--a full quarter of families with children under six live in poverty, at least 9 million children don’t have any health care, and far too many parents can’t afford to stay home with sick children. Working toward common sense family-friendly policies like those covered in The Motherhood Manifesto will help all families.
The Moms Rising campaign seeks policies that support parents and children, like parental leave, flexible work options, child care and after-school care, fair wages, and universal health care for kids.
