Moms Rising: Second Mother’s Day Posting

Yesterday I posted a women’s organization started in Argentina in the mid-1970s as a result of the repressive dictatorship. Here is the internal link to that posting: http://www.menupause.info/archives/20610. Today is the second organization:

Moms Rising

Here is an explanation (direct quote) of the organization from the website: www.momsrising.org.

A summary of us!

In short, MomsRising.org is an on-the-ground and online grassroots organization of more than a million people who are working to achieve economic security for all moms, women, and families in the United States. MomsRising is working for paid family leave, earned sick days, affordable childcare, and for an end to the wage and hiring discrimination which penalizes so many mothers.

MomsRising also advocates for better childhood nutrition, health care for all, toxic-free environments, breastfeeding rights so that all children can have a healthy start, and a national budget that reflects the contributions of women and moms. Established in 2006, MomsRising and its members are organizing and speaking out to improve public policy and to change the national dialogue on issues that are critically important to America’s women and families.

In addition to being a grassroots force, MomsRising also has a strong readership reach: With over 1,000 blogger, in 2013, Forbes.com named MomsRising‘s web site as one of the Top 100 Websites For Women for the fourth year in a row and Working Mother magazine included MomsRising on its “Best of the Net” list.

I have been receiving emails from Moms Rising and believe they are doing a good job of advocating for women and children in the areas of health care, the environment, public policy, etc.

Check out the website for more information and how to get involved.

 Happy Mother’s Day!
