New Zeland Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

When there are still so many glass ceilings that have yet to be broken, and while the battle for workplace equity and pay rages on.

This week, New Zeland Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern became the second prime minister in history to give birth while currently serving in office.

In an era where childbearing is still widely considered a professional liability, Ardern is an example that women can choose to both lead and have families.

When there are still so many glass ceilings that have yet to be broken, and while the battle for workplace equity and pay rages on, this news from New Zealand is a reminder that every day new barriers are being broken down and that world leaders come in all kinds of forms.

Hopefully some day soon we'll even see a woman and a mom in our own White House!
