SMC’s Sobotta Covers National Impact of Formula Shortage and Includes Professor Denise Witzig’s Analysis

The impact of a national shortage of infant formula is impacting families of all backgrounds, but it has been especially hard on food and farm workers who are forced to return to work immediately after giving birth. Sharon Sobotta, Director of the Saint Mary's Center for Women & Gender Equity, explored the issue in a recent story for national media outlet Civil Eats. Within the article, Sobotta also quotes SMC Professor of Women and Gender Studies Denise Witzig on the lack of support U.S. companies provide for families soon after birth.
