1. In light of Father's Day this weekend, happy daddy news: Massachusetts's State Maternity Act is now going to apply to fathers as well as mothers! :) What does this mean? It means that Massachusetts' employers will now be offering both mothers and fathers 8 weeks of unpaid leave following the birth or adoption of a child. This is great great news, hopefully we can change that to paid leave in the near future!

Friday Feel Good: Dad's Rights & Same Sex Marriage
I know this is cheating but i'm going to have to link to The Feminist Underground for today's Friday Feel Good :)
Since this installation is supposed to be happy news only, focus on Habladora's first two stories :)
2. As we learned last month, California's State Supreme Court ruled to allow same sex marriage, the ruling takes effect this weekend! :)
