Check out today’s infographic from Women && Tech highlighting differences in maternity leave around the globe. The U.S is one of only a handful of countries not to offer mandatory paid leave (mothers are limited to unpaid leave via the FMLA and whatever employers choose to offer)… and the more I think about the reasons behind why this is, the more I am inclined to believe a change is necessary. Without going too far down any political rabbit holes… I think it’s nevertheless kosher to say that being at the bottom of this list isn’t okay, right?

…Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below, and as always if you like this infographic then follow Women && Tech on Twitter here (and the creator of the infographic – Designer and Illustrator Ivonne Karamoy – on Twitter here).
