The Mommy Wars – Call for a Cease Fire

A true feminist

Tends to her own yoke of should

And not her sister’s

 

Imagine what we could accomplish if we shared each other’s burdens rather than adding to them

    We could accomplish so much. Great words.

    I thought the whole point of feminism was to allow women (and men!) to feel free to make the choices that they feel are right for them, not to tether us all to the same constricting set of “rules”. Check out the HBO documentary on Gloria Steinem. It is a great reminder of what feminist ideals are really about.

  3. Bashing what works for another woman doesn’t make anyone feel better about their personal choices. And politicians fuel the fire so we see each other as the enemy, and ignore the issues that really matter.
