Motherhood Manifesto - May 2008

A manifesto according to Webster's is "a public declaration of intentions, opinions, objectives, or motives, as one issued by a government, sovereign, or an organization."

So the Motherhood Manifesto from calls for:

M - Maternity/Paternity leave
O - Open flexible work
T - TV we choose and other after-school programs
H - Healthcare for all kids
E - Excellent childcare
R - Realistic & fair wages

We watched the Motherhood Manifesto documentary and most of the discussion focused on the work/life balance issues above.

The week we had this meeting a report came out from Save the Children ranking the US 27th for mothers, down from 26 last year. You can read the press report here.
