I will at least have three months if not four months [of maternity leave]. You know, you talk to a lot of friends who’ve had six weeks. And then, being on this international news team where we do stories about women’s issues and family friendly countries. We’ve written about the leave policies in lots of other countries.

But it has made me more aware of the struggles other women are facing.
Hey there! Before you go, please take a moment to support Inkstick Media.
As the first and only foreign policy outlet written explicitly by and for a broader, younger, and more diverse audience, Inkstick offers new views on the big, emergent questions and debates that typically are discussed behind closed doors in Washington DC, in elite diplomatic circles, and the halls of think tanks. Quite simply: Inkstick is foreign policy for the rest of us.
