Can you be a feminist housewife?

August 19, 2010

In honor of the 90th Anniversary of a womans’ right to vote, here are a few quote which have really resonated with me over the last couple weeks. Enjoy.

“A mother must put on her oxygen mask first, in order to be able to help her children” – I see this instruction on airplanes as an appropriate metaphor for feminist mothering. Mothers, empowered, are able to better care for and protect their children – Andrea O’Reilly

“Most importantly, remember that as women liberated from traditional stereotypes, we have the freedom to be as traditional as we please and still communicate the strength and ability of our gender in and out of the home. As human beings, we care for our families out of love, not because it is our duty as women.” – Haley Feuerbacher

Do you have a special quote about being a feminist which has resonated with you? Comment below and share it with the group.
