About this item

The author details the development of paid and unpaid family leave policies at the national and state levels in the US, and the influence of women's movement actors and other activists on the policy-making process. She describes different types of family leave policies, the importance of family leave for society, current policies in the US, and the influence of women's movements, unions, legislators, and party control of the government. She discusses the passage of the national Family and Medical Leave Act in 1993 for unpaid leave; its effects on work-life balance, and attempts to expand it; paid family leave in California, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and New York; policies that failed to pass in Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, and Hawaii; and private companies and municipal governments that are providing family leave.
