I wanted to blog about this last month and got sidetracked. Can you believe it?

The top link takes you to a new organization that has been formed to tackle the inequalities that most moms experience in the workplace.

The second link takes you to a New York Times article that discusses the organization in more depth and some of the political waves they are already making with their documentary.

If you go to the website you can view a trailer of the movie or sign up to host a showing. You can also join their e-mail list to stay informed of their progress.

After being "let go" because I asked for two years unpaid leave from my teaching job at Brockport (it was previously 2 years, but they had just changed the policy after I was hired), and my request to work part-time falling on deaf ears, I can sympathize with single moms who don't have the choice some of us do to stay home with the kids.

Even Andrew would love to have more family time, but no one seems interested in a part-time teacher, so he has to shoulder our financial burden alone. Luckily, Andrew has more flexibility as a nurse practitioner, but I wish I could help out more so he didn't have to work two jobs.

That's why I get so excited when I sell an e-book! It gives me a sense of pride that my writing can help other people AND help me take care of my family's needs.

Enough about me. Go check out and see what you think!
