“New Museum of Motherhood Shows Off Jaw-Dropping Displays”
Jacqueline Burt, TheStir.com (Sept 22, 2011)
“Get this: The recently opened Museum of Motherhood in NYC is the first museum ever in the world to be devoted to moms and moms alone! About time, right? You’d think we would’ve at least scored a wing in the Louvre by now.”
“MOM Takes Manhattan: The First Museum of Motherhood Opens”
Phyllis Chesler, Pajamas Media (Oct 11, 2011)
“Everyone who has ever been born has had a mother; most women have been mothers; women have been mothering children since the dawn of time. Historically, most women have spent up to twenty to forty years of their lives being pregnant, giving birth, breastfeeding, and tending children and grandchildren. Until recently — and still today — this meant facing an agonizing labor, potential death, or lifelong injury for the sake of perpetuating the human race.
“Where, then, are all our MOMs — our Museums of Motherhood? Until last month, there were no such museums, at least not on planet earth. But on Sept 1, 2011, the visionary and energized Joy Rose, a mother of four, a rock musician, the founder of “Housewives on Prozac” (1997-2007,) and an organizer of countless conferences, fairs, and festivals for mothers all over the country, opened the first such museum. It is located not far from where I live on the Upper East Side.”
“A Museum of Motherhood!”
Amy Robbins Wilson, blog (Sept 19, 2011)
“There is a space in Manhattan where mothers are seen. There is a museum where the service of motherhood is honored. There is a place in the world where women are held while their children play. There is a balm in New York City to heal a mother’s soul.”
Can’t wait to show you all the great things we have coming up!
