This has happened to us twice in Brunswick West and it’s such a heartbreaking grief/guilt combo. Always this time of year, when the foxes are feeding their young. I’m so sorry. 💔

Thank you to for bringing together some of the women I most admire, introducing me to new voices I didn’t know I needed to hear, and providing an ongoing conversation that was challenging, stimulating, intersectional and inclusive for many different audiences. 🙌

Maria Tumarkin on the burdens placed on mothers to explain the world for us, the impossibility of being the right kind of mother, why the failed mother is so threatening to our conception of the world. (I’m not doing Maria’s polyvocal, unsentimental, digressive piece justice.)

Nayuka Gorrie and Aretha Brown on what motherhood means for Aboriginal women in a colony that’s founded on the savage rupture of matrilineal lines; where mother languages are lost, and with them the experiences and knowledges only the mother tongue can express.
