“No one said you shouldn't have any of those things, and have every right to them... as do men. I too have worked for many different companies from High Tech to Banking to Retail, and while there are more often women that leave for those reasons, so do men. I know of many men who gave up their jobs to relocate, stay at home with the kids or aging parents and they did that because they did not make as much money. You are right that men can not birth the babies, but they should be able to take equal time off as a woman does if they have one WITH their spouse. There are many, many women out there who work up until the day they birth their babies and are back at work within one or two weeks, because the low paying job they have does not afford them maternity leave, and you want to claim that a woman doesn't work like a man? As a matter of fact we usually work harder than men to gain the same level of accomplishment, but still at a lower salary. A businesses bottom line would be better served with happy employees. I like being a woman as well, I just like being a woman that gets paid for equal work.”

“I think you hit the nail on the head with a "businesses bottom line".  Boards of directors have to cater to shareholders and the bottom line rules.”

“Everything you listed men experience as well. I have been in the professional world for 30+ years and have seen that revolving door for both sexes. The person who leaves or takes the time off in a family is the one with the lower salary, be they male or female. Life happens to both men and women and you are blind if you do not think that men take time out of their careers for these things as well. It is true that women do it far more than men, but that is because theirs is the lower salary. Nothing will change until women are valued equally to their male counterparts. Shame on you for perpetuating these types of sexual stereotypes, especially because you are a woman. By the way, women still get paid less even if they are single without children or past the childbearing age. Single mothers get paid even less than those I just mentioned, but lower pay is not an issue for single fathers, single men or older married men. An employer has no way of knowing at the time of hire if a woman without children will never have children, if that older woman's parents have died, or if the single mother has a fabulous support system in helping with children. It is discrimination pure and simple, and you know it.”

Alyson Stewart on Feb 26, 2013 at 15:51:24

“I've worked at any number of companies and I disagree.  Men don't just leave for family issues less, they do it almost non-existentially.  It was always the women leaving and usually for a pregnancy or to stay home and raise children whether they made more or not.  Men aren't capable of birthing those babies yet.  If we want to quit having children, being responsible for taking care of aging parents, or staying home to raise children, or in other words working like men, then salaries will  be more equal. I quite frankly like being a woman and want it to be okay to have a baby and raise them if I choose or take care of aging parents.  And, companies have a right to worry about their bottom line especially with so many doors closing.  Two to five years before closing unless investors were found was standard in the high tech industry I worked in.”

“None of things should matter in what a woman gets paid. Perhaps if a woman were valued equally then her job would not be viewed as the expendable one. In today's world the job that is given up for the reasons you listed is the one that brings in less income whether it is the man's or the woman's. And anybody having to deal with those issues in life should get the time they need to deal with them, man or woman. I am ashamed for you, and you should be embarrassed by your own comments if you are really even a woman.”

Alyson Stewart on Feb 25, 2013 at 20:27:46

“I am a woman and not in the least embarrassed.  You can't tell me that employers are not cognizant of the role of a woman in most families and how that is going to affect the way they hire, fire and runs their company.  I've worked at too many companies in the tech field and have seen the revolving door concerning women and their changing roles throughout their lives...mine included.”

Double Ultrasound Bill In Indiana Passes Out Of Senate Committee

“Once again I see you cannot answer the question. 
Where in any post have I stated anything about what I think a mans responsibility to his child is? Yes men are responsible for supporting the children they bring into this world in many ways. Some do, some don't. I happen to be an advocate for single mothers, and I have never known one of them to not discuss an unintended pregnancy with the fathers of their children before making a decision. As I have stated these are single moms I am working with so it is obvious that they decided to keep their babies, and more times than not it is against the wishes of the men that helped to create that life. Many of these men worry about having to support a child so they press for abortion. What do they care, it doesn't affect them. It is very rare for these same women to not want these men to play a role in their child's lives. 
It is more than obvious that you have some serious baggage with women.”
