Moms Lead the U.S. to a New Bottom Line?
I have written an article in Tikkun magazine called, “Can a Group Like MomsRising.org Lead the U.S. to a New Bottom Line?” It’s a brief introduction to the mothers’ movement, MomsRising.org’s MOTHERS platform, and how these point to the need for and possibility of a new bottom line in America, one where families should not have to choose between the job they need and the family they love. I argue that at this moment in U.S. history, few Americans would be anything but grateful if public policies and business practices could help them realize synergy between their work and non-work lives. Mothers feel the harsh reality of the old bottom line because they feel the toll of overly greedy jobs, bosses, organizations, and the second shift on their families and themselves.
