We're number 1[69]!

Ah, good company.

A recent study from the McGill University Institute for Health and Social Policy in Montreal found that of 173 countries surveyed, 168 guaranteed women paid maternity leave. The United States – along with Lesotho, Liberia, Papua New Guinea and Swaziland – was not one of them.

66 countries offer paid leave to fathers as well. Needless to say we are not one of those either. Download the report here.
