Why Can't New Yahoo CEO Take a Real Maternity Leave? Boston Globe
"Yahoo’s choice of Marissa Mayer as its new chief executive broke the proverbial glass ceiling that prevented women from heading large companies while pregnant. Mayer promised that when her child arrives she’s going to take just a few weeks of maternity leave, and she’ll 'work throughout it.' That’s great for Yahoo shareholders, but how great will it be for her or her baby?"
Kotz continues, "I’m not sure Mayer will really understand the reality of intense sleep deprivation until she’s having her own sleep interrupted three or four times a night for weeks on end."
The story adds, "What’s sad, though, is the lack of recognition and respect given to female corporate bigwigs who take maternity leave and completely immerse themselves in caring for their baby."
