  •  Back in the bad old days... (0+ / 0-)

    We were trying to get 14 words into the Constitution, but we were pushing for Much more.  Thinking back, I remember, flex time, the right to breast feed accommodation, workplace daycare, PAID maternity/paternity leave even for adoptions, midwife certification and assurance that  insurance co.'s pay for a midwifed birth, Douala care, equal pay, no loss of upward mobility if you took "baby time off", and a lot more that I can't recall right off.  If you look at Sweden's system, or France, it's close to what we wanted.  This isn't ancient history, I was fighting for the ERA when I was 13&14 years old and I'm not dead yet.
