"Last week, 50 prominent women placed a full-page paid ad in the New York Times calling attention to the issues that continue to disproportionately affect working mothers during this pandemic. The women, led by Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls who Code, are calling on President Biden to implement a “Marshall Plan for Moms”—a reference to the 1948 Marshall Plan, created after World War II, which fought against poverty and unemployment and aimed to create conditions for democratic institutions to survive.

“It’s time to put a dollar figure on our labor. Motherhood isn’t a favor and it’s not a luxury. It’s a job,” the Marshall Plan for Moms website states.”
