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.
