Interview with Vanessa Olorenshaw, author of Liberating Motherhood (The Green Parent)

feb-march-2017

The February / March edition of The Green Parent includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.

I spoke to Vanessa Olorenshaw, author of Liberating Motherhood: Birthing the Purplestockings Movementabout mothers’ rights and the value of caring for our own children.

We are encouraged to look for validation in the public sphere but there is nothing shameful about wanting to care for our children and our families.

  1. Hi Hannah, I enjoyed this article. I also write about mothers and mothering. Can I send a copy of one of my ebooks to see if you’d be interested to interview me or review the book? I’m a PhD in sociology and I write mostly about family and especially mothers, mothering and attachment.
