Did you know women are the main breadwinners in a record-high 40% of households with children today? They make up nearly half of our workforce and they are more than half of this country’s college graduates.
Did you know, from paid leave to fair pay, today’s workplace policies too often don’t reflect today’s realities? For instance, did you know that lack of access to high-quality, affordable child care and early childhood education threatens the economic security of women and working families?
Unless things change, we are holding our families back and compromising our children’s chances at success. Unless things change, they won’t have a fair shot in life. That’s why we’re speaking up.
