    PTAN #33 - OMG, Women Have Choices!

    Natasha Solovieff was a child of the 50s and a woman who came of age in the 60s, giving her a unique perspective on parenting. She lived through major societal shifts including feminism and the redefinition of women’s roles in the 70’s. As a result, she had many more choices than her mother and previous generations of women.
    Her own decision to become a parent at a later age came after actively choosing her profession as a nurse.
    On this episode of the Parenting Then and Now Podcast, Natasha discusses societal shifts and changes in expectations for women, men, mothers and more.
