A Family Affair – By Joy Rose

To me this is the core of everything we do; Creating an environment for families to not only enjoy each other, but to encourage ongoing dialogue about motherhood, family dynamics, feminism, education and so much more. Passing the torch to the next generation so they see first hand the passion we bring to our individual and collective voice(s), while including them and encouraging them to participate in our endeavors exposes them to a lasting legacy of empowerment and support. Ultimately, for ourselves, and our children, our future belongs to feminist family values and a sense that ‘the family who plays together, stays together’. That is our greatest and most lasting success.

Mothers who work in paid employment generally do so because they must; I do have to earn a living. Now the conditions of that paid employment, of course, is another matter. We learn from the advocacy work of organizations like MomsRising, for example, that rights such as fair pay, maternity leave, paid sick days, and flexible work continue to elude mothers in the workplace, and this is certainly, to answer the questions posed by the MamaBlogger365 initiative, one of the most pressing issues confronting mothers today. And there are other issues. Like being allowed to cop to the fact that you’re a mother and an employee at the same time, and so have more on your plate than workplace interests or tasks. MamaBlogger365 continues with Dr. Amber Kinser.
