Marissa gave birth to her son on Sept. 30 but only a few days later, she’s on the cover of ‘Fortune’ looking slim, since she reportedly declined to be photographed pregnant. Do you think it would have made a difference?

Marissa Mayer, whose pregnancy was controversial when she was hired as the CEO of Yahoo in July, welcomed her baby boy on Sept. 30. Now, a year-old photo of Marissa is on the cover of ‘Fortune’ with the headline “50 Most Powerful Women.” But without her bump, moms are furious.

The powerful businesswoman, 37, famously told Fortune magazine back in July that her pregnancy wouldn’t interfere with her job. “My maternity leave will be a few weeks long and I’ll work throughout it.”

On Oct. 3, CafeMom asked readers if they thought Marissa declined to be photographed pregnant because “her svelte figure would portray power in a way that her baby bump would not?”

New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor posted the Fortune cover on Facebook, commenting: “OK, semioticians of working parenthood. What does it mean that the cover of Fortune shows Marissa Mayer … as not pregnant?”

DailyMail posted comments from Twitter, with one user writing, “I can’t see how Marissa Mayer is anything but a terrible role model for women.”

Amy Coulterman, a communications manager from Canada, took to Twitter to say: “Stop pretending we can have it all!”

Do you think Marissa is dissing motherhood, HollyMoms?
