You Need to See This Documentary on America’s Dismal Maternity Leave Situation

International Women’s Day is over in just a few hours and all we’ve managed to talk about is nude selfies, so why not close it out by educating yourself on just how screwed women are in the U.S.?

Broadly shot an hourlong documentary about maternity leave in America, and it’s a must-watch. Your mind will be blown from the jump: did you know 88% of American women last year didn’t have a single day of paid maternity leave? For a developed country, that’s beyond atrocious.

Even if you’re not having kids any time soon, this is something that will probably affect you at some point in your lifetime. So study up.
