We Should All Be Demanding Paid Family Leave – Here’s Why

by Hanna Lustig

America is the only developed nation that doesn’t offer paid family leave. Internalize that for a moment. The. Only. Developed. Nation. 


I mean really, how barbaric! I’m pissed. And after you watch this new PSA from American Women, you will be, too. Added bonus: it features BUST cover gal Jemima Kirke, as well as feminist demi-gods Milla Jovovich, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Malik Yoba.  

Highlight of the video? Milla Jovavich offering to blow the entire Senate in a desperate act of self-sacrifice, if only they’d give this issue the time of day. 

Hopefully it won’t come to that because… Mitch McConnell anyone?!
