Season Two, Episode 13:
Myth #3: Parenting is Personal, not Political
On this episode, we explore...
In part 3 of the 4 Top Myths of Motherhood, we debunk Myth #3, that parenting is personal, not political. Abigail explains that parenting is indeed "doubly political" - not only is our parenting deeply affected by politics, but our parenting can also affect politics in turn. Together, we will look at some of the gender-based, economic, racial, cultural, and other ways politics affects parenting. And then we will shift our lens to look at the power we parents have in creating the world we want to build for the next generation.
