"All too often, these issues are thought of as women’s issues…. At a time when women are nearly half of our workforce…, anything that makes life harder for women makes life harder for families and makes life harder for children. When women succeed, America succeeds, so there’s no such thing as a women’s issue.… This is a family issue and an American issue -- these are commonsense issues."

- President Barack Obama, White House Summit on Working Families
