10 political proposals to be a woman and a mother

Society is changing in its cultural bases, its models and its aspirations. The motherhood of women continues to be a key element of the social structure. In the last decades we have experienced the massive incorporation of woman to the world of work. However, this incorporation has not been done correctly. The woman has lost, and with her, the family and society as a whole.

In general, women want to have children -according to the studies, more than they actually have-, they want to take care of them, watch them grow, accompany them in their childhood and adolescence, and enjoy, in short, your family life. But the social pressure leads them to hide their motherhood, to delay it, to hide their maternal vocation and to have to show that children do not prevent them from being "just like men". In another order of things, and for practical purposes, these feelings provoke a decrease in the birth rate that is sinking the West in a demographic winter with serious consequences for the near future.


10 political proposals to be a woman and a mother

In this context, the platform Women of the World presents ten concrete political proposals that allow women to be themselves in their double dimension, woman and mother, respecting its female identity as well as the value and dignity of motherhood.

1. Flexibility of working hours and adjusted to the needs of the working mother without discrimination of any kind, as well as the extension of the right to day reduction, regardless of the age of the children. These measures would require the necessary fiscal benefits for the companies so that they are not a burden for them. The true conciliation is that it is the mothers and fathers that take care, educate and live with their children. A healthy society is built when families can spend time together, thus allowing the family unit to be strengthened.


2. Promotion of work from home -teletrabajo- at least in some fraction (daily or weekly) of the working day. Enhance professional responsibilities by objectives, as well as the labor entrepreneurship and business from home; for both women and men, so that they can become more involved in family life.

3. Have 24 hours a year for family matters without justification, but with prior notice, for all parents of minor children of age, so that a common need is covered for all parents and that does not suppose a serious inconvenience for the company. These 24 hours or 3 days a year should be excluded from the holidays and be exclusively adjusted to the family needs.

4. Support for part-time hiring for people with family responsibilities, with tax benefits, so that these contracts do not harm the companies. Reduced days and part-time contracts are sometimes a disadvantage for companies that are forced to hire two people to perform the same job.


5. The treatment of the term 'exclusive dedication to the family' as a work category.This exclusive dedication to the family, even though it is an immense source of wealth perfectly quantifiable in the national economies through the GDP, supposes in numerous occasions a social discrimination towards the woman.

To alleviate this situation, this measure would imply:

- Individual and shared access to Social Security (SS).
- Indirect salary through subsidies and benefits in which the category "exclusive dedication to the family" has a special bonus.
- Deductions in the field of income tax in which there are deductions in the quota of this tax when one of the spouses performs unpaid work within the family home.
- Increase of the vital minimums in the IRPF.
- Direct or mixed retirement with the implementation of a pension system based on agreements with banking institutions.
- Low subsidized due to illness and maternity.

6. Substantial improvement of widow's pension for mothers with priority or exclusive dedication to the family. The dedication to the family limits the economic independence of women and keeps her away from the world of work for a long period of time.

7. Substantial tax benefits for companies that hire women who, due to their dedication to the family, have been away from the labor market for a long time, with bonus special for the hiring of single, widowed and separated women who are in a situation of special vulnerability.

8. Complaint and active prosecution of any discriminatory gesture proven, both in society and in the world of work, towards working women.Discrimination that occurs both in terms of wages, hiring, unfair dismissal, harassment, etc., not only mothers, but even women who want to be or are of age.

9. Elimination of ideological policies that do not respect the feminine identity or the woman.An unconnected, false and manipulated reality is drawn, making women "other men", nullifying the complementarity of the sexes, and therefore the wealth and the emotional balance that supposes. The dedication to the family It is presented as something negative, taking away the social and economic value it represents, and discriminating against women They freely choose the option of dedication to their family and dependents as a priority in their lives.

10. Abolition of maternity rent.The maternity rent, better known as 'rent bellies' or 'substitution gestation', does not constitute any progress or social advance, much less in terms of women's rights. It is a new way of exploitation of women for its ability to be a mother, and for people trafficking that turns children into commercial products. It supposes, therefore, a flagrant violation of the dignity of both the mother and the child. Motherhood can not be traded.
