Broad Experience Shorts: Non-Mom

Ironically today in America more than ever before there are fewer mothers. And we have made motherhood the ultimate way to be a woman.

This week, a short show on professional women with no kids. I covered this topic last year and got more responses than I had on any other show.

This time I'm using part of my interview with Melanie Notkin that didn't get an airing in the original podcast. She's a big advocate for women with no kids - specifically women who always saw themselves as mothers but for whatever reason, haven't yet had children. She's the author of a book on these women called Otherhood.

I'd love to hear from you, so if you have a comment on this topic, please post it below.

And about that T-shirt I mentioned in the podcast: this is a one-woman show and I do it because I think the stuff we talk about here is truly important. If you can support my work with a $50 donation I'd be very grateful. You can donate via the donate page. After that  please go to this Google form to fill in your name, address, email, and most important, size. The order will be sent once the shirts have arrived and the donation has been made. Shirt is 90% cotton, 10% polyester. It displays the graphics from this website's banner, including the text 'a conversation about women, the workplace, and success'.
