Universal Preschool and Working Women

As the people who give birth, women have always been expected to take charge of childcare. However, since we now live in a society where women are also expected to be part of the workforce, this proves to be a huge difficulty that many working women face. Ever since Second Wave Feminism in the 1960s, activists have been trying to get the US government to pass legislation that would help working mothers with daycare. While most developed countries in the world have universal preschool or nationalized daycare, the US does not. This infographic is an excellent source of information about exactly why it's so important for feminists to continue to lobby Congress to pass a bill creating universal preschool.
