If you are a working mom, you are probably familiar with the Family Medical Leave Act. You probably also know that the US is the only (yes, ONLY) industrialized nation that has no maternity leave. In fact, we are one of the only nations (it’s just us, Lesotho, Swaziland and Papua New Guinea) in the world without maternity leave. And this 20-year-old law was somehow going to bridge that gap. I call bullshit. Why?
