Infographic: Tech companies setting new standard for parental leave

Mother Jones just posted some pretty startling infographics comparing the U.S. government and tech companies’ parental leave policies. The federal government doesn’t mandate any paid leave for new moms and dads, but corporations like Facebook, Instagram, and reddit are setting a new standard by offering all employees, regardless of gender, 17 weeks with their new baby.

I’m not convinced that major tech companies are great feminist heroes (see: #FBrape and the 11 extra weeks of leave Google will give you only if you’re a biological mother whose fetus grew in your own ...

Infographic: Oregon is the only state without anti-choice laws

Remapping Debate has published a well-designed but absolutely terrifying graphic illustrating anti-choice legislation in all 50 states. Oregon is the only state that hasn’t passed any restrictions on Roe (supposedly allowed by the “undue burden” standard set by Planned Parenthood v. Casey). On the other end of the spectrum, Oklahoma has passed 22.
