A Feminist Mother’s Day: and Proud of it

RESOURCES:

(that I participated in today)

Podcast: The Liturgists Podcast: Women (episode 40)

To you it may be a bunch of junk. That’s okay, I’d probably say the same thing. But to me, this is MY pile of junk. It’s 5 generations (or more) of strong, bold, fun-loving, sacrificial, unique women. Mothers as a matter of fact.

Past

Present

Future

On this special Mother’s Day, I sit here (forcibly recovering from wisdom teeth removal) and reflect on the women of today.

All women.

All over the world.

All Gods wonderful treasure and amazing gift to humanity.

So today I celebrate a Feminist Mother’s Day and I’m darn proud of it.

My eyes open to the struggles of motherhood, my ears listen to the pains of sexism, my heart receives the love of a niece, my brain processes the inequality of women in the church. Of mothers alike. And what do I do? What do we do? We stand together, we celebrate small equality victories and we stand against what is wrong in the world. An open heart and time is all it takes to become aware of a worldly situation and societal attitude.

Feminism is NOT hating on the men. It’s not bringing anyone down. It’s rising people up. Feminism is changing our ways for the better of the mothers and daughter of the world.
