The Duchess of Sussex made a huge political leap after penning a letter to Congress. Meghan called for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Leader Charles Schumer for paid leave for mothers. Meghan – who welcomed a daughter Lilibet Diana in June – acknowledged how her and Harry were not “confronted with the harsh reality” and “impossible choices” other parents suffer.
In her plea for paid leave, Meghan said it should be a “national right” like many other countries.
She said: “Paid leave should be a national right, rather than a patchwork option limited to those whose employers have policies in place, or those who live in one of the few states where a leave program exists.
“If we’re going to create a new era of family first policies, let’s make sure that includes a strong paid leave program for every American that’s guaranteed, accessible, and encouraged without stigma or penalty.
“I know how politically charged things can—and have—become.
