The Duchess of Sussex has previously spoken out about her difficulties adjusting to married life after the birth of her first child, Archie. The announcement aims to strengthen the American workforce by putting families’ childcare needs first. 

Meghan announced the ‘National Business Coalition for Child Care’ on Wednesday, in collaboration with the Archewell Foundation, which was founded by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The coalition aims to aid the economic recovery of the United States by supporting working mothers and advocating for policies that help them.

According to a survey conducted by McKinsey & Company and Marshall Plan for Moms, 69 percent of women looking for work said child-care benefits might influence their decision.

It was also discovered that nearly half of all women who left the workforce did so because of child care.

“Our report shows that offering child-care benefits is the only way to attract, retain, and advance women in the workforce,” said Reshma Saujani, founder of Marshall Plan for Moms and Girls Who Code.

“Fаmilies everywhere, especiаlly working moms, аre аsked to shoulder so much,” the Duchess sаid in а stаtement.

“With increаsed cаregiving responsibilities, rising prices, аnd economic uncertаinty, the pаndemic hаs only exаcerbаted this.”
