America is failing mothers. Help us change that.

$0 raised so far
The Guardian’s new series, the Mother Load, explores why it’s harder to be a mother in the US than in any other developed country. From shamefully short maternity leave to crushing childcare costs, from rising maternal death rates to an uneven division of household chores, we’ll use the Guardian's global perspective to illustrate how America is an outlier – and find solutions.

This struggle needs more visibility – and you can help. We’re asking our readers to fund a four-month reporting project to build community and inspire activism. Together, we can force change.
