PAID FAMILY LEAVE BACK ON MASS. AGENDA

Opt Out Revolution Anti-dote?

Today the President of the Massachusetts State Senate announced a paid family leave plan that is generous by our nation’s standards. Family leave has been a dormant topic in the Mass Statehouse that hasn’t been talked about this much excitement since 2001. California is the only state to have passed any paid family leave plan. So check out today's Globe!

Sen. Pat Jehlen who came for Women's Week has a very active role in this topic, so be sure to stay abreast of this exciting news and see how we can get involved!

Interesting article on in the Sunday NY Times about paid family leave in Germany, where a woman happens to be leading the country.

Also, maybe it isn't kid's that are keeping women back, maybe it is husbands… <
just ask Madeleine Albright.

Either way, mommy power in politics is exactly what we need. And, did you know the Madeleine Albright could leg lift 400 pounds?

Oh yeah, and in case you don’t like reading, you might find this clip Caitlin Flanagan on the Colbert Report amusing and topical.
