Assignment. In this essay, I would like for you to present the two sides of the debate over whether the proposed program is pro-feminist or anti-feminist. That is debate the statement:
The proposed family leave program is feminist.
I would like to see a well-supported argument for the statement and a well-supported argument against the statement – that is, you should make the arguments in your essay that the family leave program is pro-feminist and also make the argument that it is anti-feminist (in whichever order you like).
Please incorporate materials from the textbook in your argument, especially chapters 07 and 08.
