Do mothers have an unfair advantage in the workplace? Meghann Foye, an American magazine editor turned novelist seems to think so.
Meghann joins us today live from New York to argue that people who don’t have kids should still be entitled to an extended break from work – something she has dubbed meternity leave - just like their co-workers who go on maternity leave.
Voicing her thoughts sparked a storm of criticism and Meghann was forced to cancel a television appearance on Good Morning America, but she’s agreed to talk to us today to tell us her side of the story.
