Divided States of Motherhood

There’s a lot of pressure on mothers to be perfect, but it’s a toxic concept. In this episode, Divided States of Women digs into the unfair standards around ability and child-rearing. We talk to Robyn Powell, an expert on disability law and a mother who has battled being considered “unsuitable” for parenting, but is doing so successfully, joyfully, and lovingly.
