Blessing Adesiyan and Andrea Mullan recognize how important the conversation around the unpaid labour of women/mothers is and how dire it is for actionable solutions to be found. Women are buckling under the immense physical and mental load of it all, especially mothers and not enough is being said or done to help lessen this burden on women. We spoke about this with Reshma Saujani, C.E.O and Founder, Girls Who Code.Reshma began her career as an attorney and activist. In 2010, she surged onto the political scene as the first Indian American woman to run for U.S. Congress. During the race, Reshma visited local schools and saw the gender gap in computing classes firsthand, which led her to start Girls Who Code. Reshma is also the author of Brave, Not Perfect–a movement rooted in her experience, TedTalk, book, and podcast encouraging women to live their bravest, fullest lives.
