Mailhot released on Twitter a desire to cancel a few trips on her book tour to be with her son.


I personally love this. And I think it speaks to the importance of mothers in the feminist conversation.

You can't tell by this screen shot and I'm a Luddite when it comes to the twitter world, but there was a follow up communique between a fan (?) and her.

The gist, and please forgive me for not finding the text - (any skilled OSS-ers out there?) - was that the female fan was a bit worried that Mailhot was letting a male dictate her life. Mailhot very politely quelled those fears by restating that she is a mother first.

Where does motherhood and feminism intersect?
Are there aspects where motherhood and feminism don't work well?
Does one (feminism or motherhood) take precedence over the other?
How do current mothers or future mothers handle being a feminist?
