Carolyn Rush (Sociology, Class of 2015) publishes editorial on the need for supports for breastfeeding in the workplace.
Contributed by Stephen Sweet on 12/17/2014
Carolyn Rush (Sociology, Class of 2015) published her research on the need for employer support of breastfeeding options. Her commentary appears in the website in One Million for Work Flexibility.
Rush read over 45 articles and book chapters in the process of writing this editorial, documenting that working mothers and their children benefit by breastfeeding. And yet, many work environments do not provide the breaks or private rooms needed to perform this basic aspect of mothering. She provides compelling information to argue that breastfeeding in the workplace should be supported and encouraged, not only because it is good practice, but also because it is the law.

Yanilsa Frias (Business Administration and Marketing Communication Class of 2015) publishes research in One Million for Work Flexibility
Contributed by Stephen Sweet on 12/16/2014
Yanilsa Frias (Business Administration and Marketing Communication Class of 2015) published her research on the reasons why fathers do not take parental leave on the website in One Million for Work Flexibility.
Frias read over 45 articles and book chapters in the process of writing this editorial, documenting that fathers do not take leave for two primary reasons. First, like working mothers, working fathers in the United States commonly cannot afford to take leave or the leave options are simply unavailable. Second, when fathers do take leave, it can be penalized. Fathers and mothers share similarities in these respects, but gender roles shape the different responses that men and women take in response to work-family tensions.
This work was performed in Stephen Sweet’s sociology course “Work and Family.”
