Mothers Ought to Have Equal Rights
MOTHERS is a grassroots, diverse network of mothers, fathers, grandparents and other adults who are family caregivers. We are coming together to promote the economic, social and political worth and importance of family child and dependent care. We are bringing together a coalition of individuals and organizations to improve the economic security of those who do caring work.
In the past few decades women have made enormous progress, but many women who become mothers have been left behind. The work of caring for children and other dependent family members is still unpaid or grossly underpaid, disrespected, and unacknowledged by all of the major institutions in our society. We believe that correcting the economic disadvantages facing caregivers is the big unfinished business of the women's movement.
Neither the workplace, family law, nor government puts much if any economic value on the all-important work of caring for others. The government does not even recognize unpaid labor in the home as "work," so family caregivers, unless they are employed, are left out of the basic social safety net. The effect of this disregard is clear: motherhood has become the single greatest risk factor for poverty in America. The United States has the highest rate of maternal and child poverty of any advanced country. And millions of middle class mothers are economic dependents, despite the fact that they are the primary producers of our most important source of national wealth: our future citizens, taxpayers, and workers.
