Caregiver duties: ours to share

The childcare partner in our family was my cousin Ann, for 5 years.  Our family could not have been as successful in continuing two careers and raising happy, healthy children without her.  Quality, affordable childcare is not a need for women, it’s a need for all parents, and a necessary foundation for a productive society.  The fact that Elizabeth Warren describes how finding good childcare was her challenge, rather than a challenge shared with her then husband, is revealing of the larger social inequity that has traditionally been implicit between parents.  This costs us greatly.  We all have a vested interest in helping people to be productive workers and creative contributors while also caring well for our dependents.
