Institute for Research on Poverty Webinar, Paid Family Leave for Low-Income Women

This 40-minute webinar from the Institute for Research on Poverty features Marci Ybarra of the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. She highlights the growing national interest in Paid Family Leave and the many questions about how these policies might extend to low-income women. Beginning with an overview of current family leave policies and research, she then discusses how other public welfare programs may function as temporary supports for poor mothers with infant children, and how expanded paid family leave programs could improve the well-being of families with children.
