Mask of Motherhood

The Mask of Motherhood, by Susan Maushart
“How becoming a mother changes everything and why we never talk about it”
Susan Maushart, a sociolgist and mother of three, explores how motherhood affects our lives and asks the question why women maintain such a conspiracy of silence about many of the realities and issues of motherhood.
So there aren’t many suggestions on how to help but in today’s age of constant pressure for moms to achieve the impossible, it was a relief to hear a nonconforming voice reminding us that it’s quite normal to feel ambivalent or even negative about motherhood challenges and that it’s all right to say so.
