The pregnancy of Yahoo's new boss is overshadowing the announcement of her new post.
Thirty-seven-year-old Marissa Mayer tweeted earlier this week that she was expecting a baby boy soon after she was named Yahoo's new CEO.
Mayer told Fortune Magazine that she only planned to take a few weeks of maternity leave and she would work through her time off.
Women's right's groups and bloggers immediately took to the Internet saying that Mayer was setting a bad precedent for women.
Nashville's News 2 spoke with Rosemary Plorin, Partner & Senior Vice President of Nashville's Lovell Communications Incorporated about the issue.
Plorin who is a mother of a 6-year-old little girl said, "I'm not sure we'd be having this same discussion if she were a man. In fact, I'm pretty certain we wouldn't."
While Plorin worked up until just a few days before her daughter was born, she did take maternity leave, but added Mayer's decision is really no ones business but her own.
"Why is this such a dialogue? It really seems like a personal decision," she said.
Nashville News 2 viewer Ketiva Lynch disagrees with Mayer's decision and posted on Facebook, "I am a nurse and work hard to provide for my family and when I had each of my three daughters I took my six weeks even though it meant no paycheck when [paid time off] ran out, but now with them 20, 16 and 15, I yearn for that time again and would not trade it for anything."
Facebook user Lori Adams added, "I understand if you just have to work [not being able to take off work for financial reasons] but if you have maternity benefits then why not use them so that you may spend that time with your infant. If you just want to work and have someone else take care of child [like so many do], why have a child?"
Many said that Mayer's comment on working through a short maternity leave proves that women can not have it all.
