I wish I had said it first: “Lean In” should leverage the movement to bring in policies that support women like paid maternity and paternity leave, affordable childcare, paid sick days and flexible and part-time work hours. Thanks to Yaron Schwartz for writing a great article and mentioning Madeleine Kunin’s book, The New Feminist Agenda.
Here is an excerpt; “Given its widespread support from women, businesses and young people, the Lean In movement has the ability to lead a coalition of organizations that would advocate for federal and state governments to tackle workplace gender inequality. In addition to supporting its chapters’ social and education events, the Lean In organization should seize the opportunity to mobilize its constituents to advocate for meaningful government legislation that can help women in the workplace.” Yes!!!
