She has also received a Congressional Citation from the U.S. Senate for her work in maternal health.

#3: Improved Quality of Childcare

Childcare is one of the main catalysts to the decline of maternal health. Christine Michel Carter is also aligned to the WHO health topic: quality of childcare and is passionate about elevating the importance of this issue. America, for example, has been facing a childcare crisis for years – it’s been too expensive, unavailable in certain areas, or deemed an unnecessary resource by employers.

#4: Establishment of an Equal Paid Leave Policy

Christine Michel Carter urged congressional action on a federal paid family leave program. Lack of a national paid leave policy makes all of us more vulnerable during public health emergencies while putting businesses’ financial stability on the line. 

Paid leave is also a key element of addressing racial, class, and gender inequalities in the United States.  An investment in this is an investment in women and the future of our economy.
