Praise for Single Mothers Speak on Patriarchy

"If we are ever to value women, we must value mothers. Our voices can be easily ignored or dismissed. Single Mothers Speak on Patriarchy raises the voices of women who are so easily dismissed. This collection of words and art from single mothers is at once enraging, inspiring, uncomfortable, moving and authentic. Solidarity, sisters, and congratulations on speaking your truth. The rest of us? Listen up. #MothersOfTheWorldUnite".
Vanessa Olorenshaw, author of Liberating Motherhood, Birthing the Purplestockings Movement.
