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.
