Despite some hand-wringing from conservatives over the fact that women care about their careers, Jill from Feministe has a great post in The Guardian about how this shift is actually good for families.
I'm a sex positive feminist, and an advocate for sex workers' rights. But Audacia Ray, a sex positive feminist and former sex worker herself, has an excellent essay on why sex positive feminists unintentionally create barriers for the achievement of sex workers’ rights. A must read!
Jill from Feministe also has a great post on the controversy over Hilary Rosen's comments. She writes:
“Motherhood is the most important job in the world” is basically a rhetorical trick to romanticize motherhood so that we don’t have to see it as real work. We put motherhood on a pedestal so that we don’t actually have to discuss the reality of it.and
Free female labor props up our economy and saves us all tax money. I’m not just talking about stay-at-home moms; I’m also talking about the labor that working moms do when they leave their paid job at the end of the day.
Shannon from The Radical Housewife writes one of my favorite responses to the recent "Mommy Wars" by reminding us that they're class wars and arguing that capitalism depends on women's unpaid work.
