What Ivanka & Her Dad Have In Common: Stealing Other People's Ideas

The first daughter and White House advisor's schedule isn't public, but we'll keep you posted on her goings-on every week.One of the reasons we regularly write about Ivanka Trump is because her position actually comes with a lot of power. As a presidential advisor to her father in the most chaotic White House ever, she reportedly has a great deal of freedom to set her own agenda. And she has, admirably, focused her agenda on issues that affect women, both globally and in the United States, from...

I’m A Caregiver — & Any Paid Family Leave Plan Should Include Us

My mom was rushed to the hospital in April 2017 with symptoms of what she at first thought was a serious flu, but turned out to be acute myeloid leukemia. She already had limited mobility from Parkinson’s Disease, and the brutal first round of chemo left her mostly unable to walk thanks to a side effect called neuropathy. After a several-months-long remission, her AML is now back.For me as an only child, this has meant shuttling back and forth between New York, where my job is, and D.C., where ...

"But some who have observed or trained once-recalcitrant men cite small successes in changing perceptions about the nature of 'male' jobs."

"Ellen Bravo, a director of Family Values at Work, found that male firefighters in Kansas City, Mo., had adapted to changes they once dismissed as unmanly, such as wearing masks to protect against lung cancer or talking about grief after witnessing death and suffering. Jessica Smith, an associate professor at the Colorado School of Mines, studied the successful experience of women in a Wyoming mine in the 2000s during a time of hiring expansion, when women were not perceived as taking jobs from ...

Here's What You Should Know About New York's New Paid Family Leave Program

Diana Limongi, who works at a university in New York City, went back to work four months after giving birth to her daughter last year. This was the maximum amount of time she was able to take — unpaid — through the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Even though her self-employed husband and her mom helped her out, it didn't feel like enough for the Astoria mother of two.Now that there's a new paid family leave program in effect in New York state, which gives most workers up to eight weeks of...

What Do Men Do On Paternity Leave? Become Dads

Ari Joseph answers the door of his Brooklyn apartment with 7-week-old Selma strapped into a nursery-gray Boba baby carrier. All that's visible of the infant is a shock of black hair against her father’s chest, where curls the same color tuft out of his v-neck tee.It almost feels like being pregnant, he says, wearing a baby like that; he can’t bend down and can only reach things at a certain radius. He fans his arms around like he's doing calisthenics to demonstrate. While his wife, Emily, grabs...

Does Trump's Paid-Leave Policy Go Far Enough?

As expected (and teased for months), President Donald Trump's budget proposal includes a paid parental-leave benefit for working Americans. The detailed 2018 federal budget, released Tuesday morning, seeks federal funding to create a program that would provide six weeks of paid parental leave for new mothers and fathers, as well as adoptive parents.The benefit aims to mandate paid leave "so all families can afford to take time to recover from childbirth and bond with a new child without worryin...

"It's Kirsten": The One DC Powerhouse Every Young Woman Must Know

It’s 2017, and yet women are still fighting for equality. Data suggests it will take until 2152 to close the gender wage gap, but it shouldn’t take a century to get what we want. We want more, and Refinery29 is here to help — because 135 years is too long to wait for what we deserve today.The morning of January 21 was bizarrely warm, as if the weather knew America was going through something weird and decided to play along. A fuzz of condensation hung in gray skies, which made the sea of pink s...

Bizarro Nominee For Labor Secretary

The President-elect's appointees to cabinet posts seem to come from a Bizarro world, where characters are the polar opposite of what their new positions represent: an energy secretary who denies climate change and expressed the desire to shut down that department; a health secretary who wants to privatize Medicare; an attorney general responsible for protecting voter rights who has a track record of opposing voting rights. One of the most Bizarro examples is Andrew Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurant...

Here's One Progressive Cause That Might Not Wither In The Trump Era

WASHINGTON ― President-elect Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric and the sudden real possibility of a registry for Muslims scares Jacob Feinspan. He’s executive director of Jews United for Justice, a local advocacy group. Jewish people have seen this before, he said at an event here earlier this week. He didn’t need to explain further. Yet for all the uncertainty and fear Trump is bringing to town, Feinspan was feeling kind of upbeat. With pushing from his group, part of the DC Paid Fam...

The U.S. Should Meet Global Standards On Breastfeeding And Paid Leave

The disturbing consequences of inadequate paid leave are all too familiar to families in countries where affordable leave is insufficient, and especially in the United States, which lacks a government policy altogether. A factory worker back at work just three weeks after giving birth had to pump milk in the parking lot on breaks. A hotel worker lost her job because no positions were available to accommodate two to three unpaid 15-minute breaks to pump milk over the course of an eight-hour shift...

Women No Longer Have To Pick Between A Paycheck And Escaping Abuse In These 2 States

It’s a lose-lose situation: If you’re a victim of domestic violence, you’re likely to have to skip work on short notice ― to seek medical attention, to talk to police and prosecutors, or even to relocate for your own safety. But missing work means losing money, or even worse, your job, at a time when financial independence is key.  Victims in Arizona and Washington may not have to worry about that anymore. On Tuesday, voters in both states approved ballot measures that require employers t...

Danny Meyer Steps Up And Gives His Workers Paid Parental Leave

First, he banned tipping. Now, famed restaurateur Danny Meyer is giving all workers at his New York restaurants eight weeks of paid parental leave, according to Eater.com. The policy is particularly notable in the service industry, where the pay is low and the benefits mostly nonexistent.  Meyer is CEO of the Union Square Hospitality Group, which owns 13 popular Gotham haunts, including Blue Smoke, Gramercy Tavern and The Modern. He also founded Shake Shack, which went public last year and ...

Donald Trump Just Radically Broke With Republicans On Maternity Leave

Donald Trump on Tuesday will formally propose that the federal government guarantee up to six weeks of paid leave to new mothers, campaign officials told reporters. Although the plan is characteristically short on detail and appears to lack adequate funding, it represents a sharp break with the Republican establishment, which has traditionally dismissed such proposals as job killers that lead to too much government involvement in Americans’ lives. A Trump advisor, who spoke to reporters ahead o...

How Obama's Presidency Has Been A Victory For Working Parents

As President Barack Obama approaches the end of his second term, there's been much discussion of what his legacy will be. While much of that debate focuses on his foreign policy or his sweeping domestic policies, such as the Affordable Care Act, there's another area where the 44th president has left a significant mark: making life easier for millions of working parents. "His administration has spent a lot of time and energy explaining why family-friendly policies are good for business, and p...

How Many Weeks Of Paid Family Leave Does The U.S. Guarantee? Zero. Wow!

Most countries in the world require employers to offer paid family leave to new parents. So, how many weeks of paid leave does the U.S. guarantee? Believe it or not, the number is zero. The U.S. is the only developed country in the world without mandatory paid parental leave. In fact, the U.S. joins Lesotho, Papua New Guinea, and Swaziland on the short list of countries lacking federally mandated paid leave for anyone. Granted a few individual states require paid leave, and around 10 percent of...

The Intended Consequences of Paid Leave

It's as predictable as the terrible twos: Any time groups try to pass a progressive workplace policy, opponents warn of the unintended consequences to jobs and businesses. That has certainly been the case with proposals to establish a family and medical leave insurance fund. The facts say otherwise: A growing body of evidence shows that such a policy does not unintentionally harm businesses or jobs or profitability or the economy. But the Chicken Little crowd shouldn't be the ones who define the...
