Acknowledging the dual role of mother and citizen, Scary Mommy writer and mom Farrah Alexander, provides empowerment and guidance for the modern progressive mother.
On the intersection of feminism and motherhood.Mothers are a force to be reckoned with. And after the Women's March and midterm elections, moms have surely secured their spot in today's feminist movement. But for those who aren't ready to make a bid for the presidency, the way forward can seem daunting and unclear. Whether it's correcting a misinformed family member about gender equality or running for political office, this bold and accessible primer presents active parents with different types of activism they can incorporate into their parenting, no matter how big or small.
When active parents support the feminist movement. With practical guidance, political commentary, and inspiration, this feminist manifesto for moms tackles problems from political representation to sexual misconduct. It doesn't just validate present-day feminist frustration, it also offers practical ways to channel it into solutions. Most importantly, it proves that by planting seeds of empathy and political awareness in their children, moms can raise their children to be change-makers. They can raise the resistance.
