National Partnership for Women & Families

Work & Family

Your family depends on you, and so does your employer. You have to make ends meet both at home and at work. And you need policies that reflect 21st century dynamics. We get it.

It’s time for our nation to show that it values families. All it takes is one major life event — a new baby, a serious illness, losing your job, a family crisis, some unexpected emergency — and everything can unravel. Where’s our economic security?

We’re fighting for you. At the National Partnership, we are proud of our storied history fighting for policies that help you meet the dual demands of work and family.

Other countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) started providing  paid maternity leave more than 100 years ago. When will the United States get with the program?
