Listen to episode 42 here. “She is so selfless! She gave up everything for her children. She’s a saint, the way she holds that family together!” Thank you for respecting womens’ work for once but enough with all the self-sacrifice hype! By complimenting mothers on their selfless bahavior, we’re essentially perpetuating the religious ideal of the sacrificial mother Mary and at the same time supporting patriarchal ideas of motherhood, all at the cost of foregoing our own dreams. Join me for this all-new episode of Bitch, breathe! and let me know what you think!
