For Policymakers

Policymakers can work towards family policies that are equal and just.

Unfortunately, today most U.S. policies are not equal and they are not just. Reasons are complex, and include: 

The misuse of statistics on mothers and employment. Please see our Statistics page. 

The influence of those with a financial interest in policies that support services for parents, including child care services.

Many parents - especially those providing unpaid care for their children - are not represented at the table when family policy is discussed.
