We are All Mothers Work, a maternal feminist organisation and campaign group. We reject patriarchal models of value, worth and status. We reject narrow, antiquated and stereotyped notions of what it means to be female, to be a mother, to work, and to contribute and matter. We reject all hierarchical notions about wealth, class, being deserving, of worthiness. We value, focus on, and strive to uphold, women’s strengths, positive attributes and models and expression of worth, status & power. We respect and embrace all models of family. We believe in true equality, in choice, in expression, in freedom, of individuality and community both, in diversity, and in multiplicity. We believe in the power and importance of nurturing, reciprocity, coming together, collaboration, collectivism, creativity, balance, mutual interdependence and tolerance, and peaceful protest. We believe in the rights of children as full, equal human beings, and their right to a loving, gentle, free, happy, explorative childhood, without earlier and earlier institutionalisation in childcare and schooling.
We are a group of mothers who have found each other online, and, in doing so, have found a shared dissatisfaction, a shared vision and a shared drive to create real change. We hope you share our ideas too and will join us.
