So I across this interview with Meghann Foye about her new book "Meterinity". It goes on to say she has never had kids but feels that women, and to a lesser degree, men deserve to take a paid leave to give them "me" time to find themselves mid career. This came about because she was envious of other women who choose to take a more "traditional" role and get knocked up. She feels your more likely to be given some slack if you have to leave to go get your kids then take your girlfriend out for drinks cause she was stood up...

So being in the culinary field I can honestly say at least in the places I worked you aren't given slack for having kids in fact you are more likely to get the crappier shifts be skipped over for promotion and advancement and have your thoughts and opinions ignored. She also goes to talk about going through a burn out and how this would help women(who don't have kids) and men keep from having these. "Bottom line: Women are bad at putting themselves first. But when you have a child you learn to self-advocate to put the needs of your family first. A well crafted "meternity" leave can give you these skills."

Your thoughts and GO!!!
