European Member of Parliament Takes Her Baby To Work……
Licia Ronzulli, an MEP from Italy, took her seven-week old daughter Victoria to work at the European parliament this week at Strasbourg.She kept her baby carefully cradled against her in a sling and occasionally leant to kiss her on the forehead. Photographs of Ronzulli cradling her daughter in a sling as she voted on proposals to improve women’s employment rights were broadcast around the world and published in newspapers from the US to Vietnam.
A very powerful image. Women’s employment rights are pretty dismal, especially here in the states, especially when it comes to family and maternity leave.
Talk about productive and reproductive labor.
