We have the delights of Margaret Beckett, or Harriet Harman to look at! In fact ugly women seem to be attracted to the Nu Labour political benches! It would be interesting how much maternity Ruth Kelly took following the birth of her kids whilst an MP.
I saw a list breaking down length of maternity leave by country not too long ago... was not a surprise that the States are on the low end with only six weeks (unpaid) garaunteed by law but I was amazed at the statutes in nations like Russia and Iran... very generous and too be honest, a heck of a lot more realistic considering that those first few months can have a strong impact on the health and psychology of a child.
