Mia Birdsong and Anne-Marie Slaughter spoke on KQED Radio about policy changes that can help meet the demands of today's families:
I'm suggesting that there is no one 'best' type of family. The idea that we're looking for which the best type doesn't make any sense. For me, marriage works. For other folks, it doesn't. We need systems and social norms that support families regardless of what their structure is.
