A warm welcome to my blog. My name is Jane Chelliah and I started this blog some 5 years ago to share my experience as a feminist mother. I am often asked what ‘feminist mothering’ means. I wrote about it for the FWord feminist site when I was the guest blogger for the month of March in 2016. In a nutshell, it is about mothering in a way that creates a lifestyle which benefits both you and your children. I have a teenage daughter called Maelo.
I always keen to hear stories about how other women choose to mother. ‘Feminist mothering’ is a lived experience and an ideology and many mothers practice it without actually realising that there is a school of thought attached to it.
