Media - We are delighted to feature this article about the power of mothers in the most recent edition of Causette - a feminist magazine published in France.
Inspired by a recent essay written by Fatima Ouassack, a French Feminist, the article is centred on the power of mothers as changemakers and predicts a potential shift in the mainstream feminist views regarding mothers : “Against racism, for an ecological and feminist society, “my solution is mothers”, Fatima comments.
The stories of the women captured in the piece therefore highlight the importance of the action of women as feminists but also as mothers and family makers. Faced with discrimination and violence, be it political, economic, environmental or social issues, mothers are increasingly at the forefront.
The article also features MMM’s Secretary General Marie-Liesse Mandula – pictured above – who emphasized the urgent need for policies at decision making levels specifically targeting mothers, to support and raise awareness of their role as mothers and … changemakers.
Mothers are a force to be reckoned with.
Ultimately, this report highlights that no woman should allow herself to be exploited, neither by maternal stereotypes nor counter-stereotypes – a welcome change from the somewhat antagonistic views often aired by the various and numerous currents of feminism we are witnessing.
