Here's part 2. Happy Mother's Day to all literal mothers and to women everywhere giving birth to radical love and hope and life! I love you, Julia Ann (my mommy) and Gracie (my brilliant, wonderful daughter)!!!!!!!!!!!
For Mother's Day, here's the first article I ever had published. It's still one of my very faves, written soon after my feminist consciousness began emerging - and how! - and spurred to action by the book The Mommy Myth, by Susan J. Douglas and Meredith W. Michaels. (What a fantastic read, btw!)
OK, so I don't have the technical acumen nor the lack of laziness to make this look better, and the publication was large, so I had to fold the article in half and save in two parts. Here's the first. Enjoy!
