Hello dear listeners!
In our tradition of personalising Namibian and global feminist issues, this week we have a discussion around parenting and what that really means. We are joined by Namibian feminist extraordinaire, writer, creative and new parent, Ethne Mudge.
We talk about how majority of the parenting duties, responsibilities and public judgement often falls on those who give birth. Often "mothers" are left isolated to raise their children in order to fit the needs of the patriarchy, while simultaneously denying "mothers" the rights to pleasure, self-care and community support.
We also highlight the issue that women are often left to "mother" men, showing us that there are different institutionalised forms of parenting. So let's talk frankly about how motherhood is simply one of the most monumental and unappreciated jobs in the world.
