Why is maternity leave, policy and other women's issues not important as compared to Juneteenth, coed bathrooms, and all the other issues in the media today? Women are half the population and at an average of 2.1 kids per woman, these are major issues. Are we not vocal enough? Organized enough? Not a serious voting demographic? Too grateful things are better in this generation? What is it? Why does 50% of the population matter less compared to these smaller marginal groups?

We should be celebrating as well as advocating for other issues. It’s not one or the other…

Yes. I am not saying we shouldn't focus on those other issues. I'm asking how come those are getting traction, while these maternity ones are not? What is the gap? What are we missing? What should we do differently to beget change? The point was to discuss a change in strategy.

Juneteenth is other issues wow 😮

Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?

How many woman are still regularly wearing heels in the office? I’ve found that my office is much more casual than is was pre-covid but still need to look presentable.

I feel weird walking around in heels when the other women are more casual. Should I stay in line with what others are wearing or are heels ok?
