I worked with a guy who everytime I got my hair cut, told me it was, ‘ a real mammy hair cut.’ It really, really pissed me off.
This article on ‘How Feminism Has Left SAHMs Behind’ has been doing the rounds on social media the last few days, and I wanted to comment on it pretty heavily since it discusses a few things I have plenty of opinions about. Also, I’m just back off holiday and I haven’t blogged in a while so this is as good a place as any to kick things off again.
Surprise, surprise the Daily Mail published a horribly misogynistic article slamming a number of parenting bloggers who choose to be honest, and possibly a little tongue in cheek, about motherhood as they experience it.
Before this blog turned into a big ol’ feminist party, it started off as a place for me to complain about how hard it is being a mother, but the two things aren’t completely unrelated.
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).
The recent heatwave has me questioning my body image for the first time in quite a while.
