The Catholic Feminist

Mar 13, 2019

Being a working mom can have plenty of “bumps” in the road (…see what I did there?) but your postpartum rights shouldn’t be one of them. I absolutely loved chatting with attorney Emily Kearney on today’s show! Emily has experience in postpartum rights in the workplace and speaking with her about our rights if we’re returning to a secular workplace post-childbirth was fascinating. We also talked about her work in the area of broader disability rights, why she feels we’re so indifferent about ableist discrimination, and why these are pro-life issues. This episode is a total powerhouse of legal, empowering goodness—enjoy! Emily also provided us with an INCREDIBLY generous handout on our rights as moms int he workplace. Head to the show notes at to snag her free download.
