February 15th saw the first motherhub event take place in the Workman’s Club in Dublin. On the panel  to discuss ‘Raising Feminists’ were Roisin Ingle (Irish Times), Senator Lynn Ruane, Dr Marie Moran (UCD Equality Studies) and Melanie Lynch (Herstory founder).

Are you the mother who always puts herself last? Who tends to everyone else’s needs before your own? You are? Well, stop it.

Reposting a blog from a few months ago, but always, unfortunately,  relevant.

Finally, finally, let joy be unconfined, finally it is February. The long hard slog that is January has come to an end and with it my self imposed make up ban.

There are people waiting, always waiting, ready to point their figures. To tell us we have got it wrong. We don’t know best.
