Plain English Summary
“A timely and much needed book. A collection of personal stories about motherhood, mothering and mothers, which shed a light on lived experience. The accounts are linked by themes of seeking acceptance and inclusivity; of guilt and of shame; stigma and exclusion; silencing and blame; choice and decision-making; uncertainty and fear; joy and celebration; collective action and campaigns; and of love.”
