Baby Boom: Motherhood and Museums

As a member of the Small Museums Committee for the American Association for State and Local History, I write quarterly blog posts for our blog.  One just posted, and it’s already getting some attention.  In it, I share some stories of friends and their recent experiences surrounding their maternity leave.  It’s some frustrating stuff, and I hope it sparks some conversations and people to take a second look at their personal leave policies.

It’s a toss up on what I post here and what I’ll save for over there.  Generally, things that are Dallas or DHV specific will probably land here.  More general things I may save for AASLH.  Or it may just depend on my mood.  Or if I have a deadline for AASLH.  But I will try to remember to cross-post.
