Army of Babysitters

The more I think about it, the more essential it seems. Women who are mothers (82% of women by the age of 45, or some such number) will never be able to make a concerted effort to engage meaningfully in politics until it is very, very easy to drop off the kids in a safe room, with loving caregivers, just outside City Hall, or Congressional Office Buildings, or other public spaces, so we can march in, express ideas, run for office, and make decisions about policy priorities and funding allocations. We need recruiting stations for grandmas!
