Yahoo's CEO, Marissa Mayers, has announced that she will take only about two weeks of maternity leave to deliver twins and that she plans to work during that as well. Meanwhile, in India, the government is considering implementing an eight month maternity leave policy. On Agenda, we look at how health and maternity benefits elude most working women and whether the unrealistic standards set for women impact their health. How is it ensured that women do get the desired amount of maternity leave and it does not act as a setback or stagnation point in their career? How do women in the unorganised sector manage with barely any maternity leave? All these questions and more on the maternity leave debate on Agenda.
