You see, you being ignorant of [the media response to violence in Chicago] doesn’t mean the issue itself is being ignored, in the same way that when it snows where you live doesn’t mean the world isn’t getting hotter.

Ok, so things are improving on many fronts when it comes to women in the workforce, but we’re slipping compared to other countries when it comes to female labor force participation.

Since 1990, the U.S. has dropped from 7th to 16th in that category among advanced democracies—that’s in the bottom third. In fact, we’re the only developed country that does not guarantee paid maternity leave.

But with the right policy changes, we can jump back up the leaderboard and help expand opportunity for millions of women. Paid leave and other policies that enable workers to better balance work and family obligations could help boost female labor force participation. One study estimated that U.S. female labor force participation would be 6.8 percentage points higher if the U.S. had implemented a suite of family-friendly policies. (cc Republicans in Congress)

lions used to be my favorite animal and they’re really still one of them and I just don’t get why anyone would ever think to “hunt” or “stalk” one and then kill it. :(
