Women are still paid less than men for doing the same work, so when families can't access child care, they're three times more likely to leave their careers.
Can you relate? We're seeking stories from women who have experienced the difficulties of juggling family and financial security.
Do you feel that your career/financial security has been negatively impacted because you couldn't find or afford child care? Please tell us about it below.
We may request to share your story in our Personal Stories blog, on social media, by email or in other ways (we'll always ask you first).
Thank you for helping us build awareness about the urgent need to ensure every Vermont family has affordable access to high-quality child care!
