You know what’s harder than being a woman? Being a working woman. And to top that, if you’re a woman who is pregnant, you might as well kiss your future up the corporate ladder goodbye.Workplace discrimination against women comes in many forms. Not the least of which is when a woman decides to take time off to have a child. Legal as maternity leave might be, in the workplace arena it’s just that time when a woman is not a ‘worthy asset’ anymore, ‘performing inefficiently’ if at all and possibly lost to ‘family life’ forever. So why invest in her?!
Even though it’s illegal to ask a woman to give up her job if she’s pregnant, countless companies find other coercive ways to make her do so.This bold and powerful ad shuts those down who think a pregnant woman is somehow ‘handicapped’. What she is, is a powerhouse you can’t deal with.
