FemCatholic is a media company dedicated to having honest conversations about Catholic women in the world and in the Church. We’re taking you behind-the-scenes on why we decided to launch a campaign on paid maternity leave, what the Church actually teaches about women in the workforce, and the progress made against Pope John Paul’s call for a “civilization of love.” Visit femcatholic.com/paid-leave to learn more and sign the petition.
