Laura Perrins v three feminists: Is maternity leave (12 months) too long?

There was an interesting discussion (17:08) on Sunday Morning Live this morning, over whether statutory maternity leave (maximum 12 months) is too long. The episode is here, and will be available for 29 days. The relevant section is 21:09 – 38:17.

The BBC’s customary gender and ideological stance was in evidence. The interviewer was female, Laura Perrins (co-editor, The Conservative Woman) was the only one speaking sense whilst being opposed by three feminists (two female, one male). She put in a great performance, as we’d expect from the woman who slayed three feminists on Woman Sour four months ago – here (audio, 14:45).

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    It is too long if a company (read other workers ) have to pay most of the salary for the absent female worker. It is not too long, and could be a lot longer if a husband, ( not other workers ) supports the non working wife/ new mother, as it should be..
