Blog Series: Motherhood Vs Feminism

Before Time Magazine came out with their controversial cover regarding breastfeeding a three year old child, I read an article in online version of The New York Times on this very topic of breastfeeding.  The April 30th article consisted of the perspective of five different women, they are Mayim Bialik (actress and author), Heather McDonald (comedian, producer and writer), LaShaun Williams (columnist and blogger), Annie Urban (blogger) and Maria Blois (author).  I will be writing a blog series based on the opinions and real life stands of these women.  This dialogue began in response to the book, “The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women” by Elisabeth Badinter.  Based on this book, the Time Magazine article and the opinions of these women we can bring debate and dialogue on this topic.  My first post will be “Attachment Parenting – What is it?” the next “Working Mom and Still Attached”, followed by “Why Does Feminism Have to be a Dirty Word?”, then “Parenting vs. Mothering” and finally “Realistic Parenting”.  I am hoping we can take a good look at this topic and generate some helpful comments.  If you have read the Time Magazine article, The New York Times articles or just an opinion – let me know what you think.
