In this Episode, I interview Amy Richards, author of the parenting book “Opting in: Having a Child Without Losing Yourself.” Amy is an activist, writer, organizer,art historian, and long time advocate of feminist issues. We talk about parenting, and the subsequent mommy wars that have ensued in the past years. Unfortunately for the ladies, having a vagina means you are constantly being torn between being a mom, and being a part of the work force. Not only is that very uncomfortable, but it is time for a cultural episiotomy to address this conundrum so women don’t feel guilty regardless of their choices.
