Women are the real architect of society. Every woman who carries a child in her soul, heart and body and brings a human being into this world is the real hero in our view.
She must be respected and given the due recognition and rights at work. Paid 90-days maternity leave for working mothers is extremely necessary not just for mothers to fully recover, bond with the child and nurture him/her but for the psychological peace of the family to sustain their livelihood through this period.
CHILD CARE CENTERS
It is not practical for mothers to stay home and care for their children since most families now rely on two breadwinners to stay above water. Moreover, mothers are more likely than fathers to take time away from paid work to care for a child, which can worsen mothers’ lifetime earnings gap. However, paying for child care eats into about 35.9% of low and medium income families.
Suitable early child care centers have many benefits, better and more long-term outcomes for children of divergent economic backgrounds. Moreover, investments in these programs help cultivate a future workforce, secure long-term economic competitiveness, and develop our nation’s future leaders.
