Lets Join Forces
A Washington lobbyist has offered to help with this campaign. Her message can be found at the link below and she has also created a Facebook page called "Lets do Something About This."
Email her at letsdosomethingaboutthis (at) gmail (dot) com and maybe together we can really get some momentum behind this campaign.
The previous generation of women achieved so much and they did it just by talking together as women (called "conciousness raising") about issues that they thought were just personal matters but that they actually shared in common with millions of other women. That's where the phrase "the personal is political" came from. Maternity leave isn't a personal issue women should struggle though, it is a political isue and lawmakers should pay attention.
