Valuing Women’s Work

Ellen Bravo discusses how women’s work is valued in the United States and the public policies that promote family values.

“Unlike Rush, I like to start with the facts […]  The United States is one of four countries in the entire world where women don’t have paid maternity leave.”

“My husband and I raised two sons and we tried so hard to train them to only get sick when it was convenient.  For many people, it’s not just a problem, it’s  a crisis.”
