Mom Power and Paid Leave

Mom Power and Paid Leave

I’m a fan of Moms Pump Here because it’s the perfect mix of creativity, problem solving, and women supporting other women. To me, it represents genius born of the maternal experience. Moms deal daily with multiple demands, usually conflicting and all happening at the same time. We have limited resources of time, money, and our own energy. Yet most nights, by the time we fall into bed, our families are safe, fed, and loved. We know we can look to each other for help, and Moms Pump Here delivers.

We mother in a country where parents generally, and women, in particular, are severely underserved by their elected policy makers. When the market economy and public policy totally fail us, we come up with amazing solutions. In this context, every addition to the growing list of lactation rooms is another strike for women’s progress. Like job rating sites List Your Leave or InHerSight, MPH makes essential information for mothers available at your fingertips. We have to use this data - every other resource we can - to change the sorry state of women’s leadership in the US, where the US Supreme Court is the only governmental body to reach 30% female representation, women comprise 4.2% of Fortune 500 CEO’s and women’s poverty rate is higher than men’s at every age, and much higher over age 65.

It's done with smiles and being fake. If you've ever moved to a new area and quickly realized you needed to enroll your child in a particular pres-school or playdate group because you didn't want to be a social pariah then you are familiar with a world where judgement is common place.

There may have even been times you've shown up to a group playdate and you realized everyone was wearing name brands but you showed up with your streetachi's. Moms are sweet to you but you know you're out of place. And if the moms are clicky you may even feel like they're talking about you. When you leave the room you feel like they're gossiping at your expense.
