Expected Backlash As Author Suggests Non-Parents Need A Maternity Leave Too!

38-year-old Meghann Foye is a writer who’s never had kids.  And she has a new book called “Meternity”(ME-ternity). The book is a fictional story about a woman that fakes a pregnancy at work. However, the author says that everyone should get a maternity leave at work. It’s only fair.

She told the “New York Post” she was jealous of all her friends who’d get time off when they had a baby, because they’d come back more sure of themselves.  And that having kids was the only path that provided flexibility at work.

Quote, “There’s something about saying, ‘I need to go pick up my child’ as a reason to leave the office on time that has far more gravitas than, ‘My best friend got ghosted by her OkCupid date and needs a margarita,’ but both sides are valid.
