This last year has been a great time for my ‘personal growth.’ I do feel a bit gross saying that but there it is.
Feminism, at its core, is about equality. In patriarchal society women have been , and are, at a disadvantage. How does this society also disadvantage fathers?
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).
Are you the mother who always puts herself last? Who tends to everyone else’s needs before your own? You are? Well, stop it.
