Reddit and Initialized Capitol co-founder Alexis Ohanian plans to visit Washington in September to meet with senators and public figures to discuss the matter of paid paternity leave.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Ohanian told about importance of fathers’ care of their children.
“What we are looking for is some minimum number of weeks of leave,” he told Good Morning America. “I use 16 [weeks] as the example that we use in our office and that’s really, that is the bare minimum when you look across the world. If there is a new child entering your life, you should be able to spend time with them.”
Ohanian earlier said he took a leave when his daughter Olympia was born in 2017 because his wife Serena Williams suffered life-threatening complications after giving birth.
