Our Beliefs:

All the work mothers do – whether paid or unpaid – has social and
economic value.
Caregiving work is real work with real social and economic value.
All women deserve recognition and support for their right to choose if
and how to combine parenting and paid employment.
All mothers, all children and all families are unique. We respect the
wisdom of each mother to decide how to care for her children, her
family and herself.
Mothers have the right to fulfill their caregiving responsibilities
without incurring social and economic penalties.
The transitions women make into and through motherhood are challenging
and can be difficult.
Together, mothers are powerful.
