Because I cannot stay silent. +The Silent Mother
"Somehow, in the intervening years, we forgot. We forgot what our mothers marched for and what our grandmothers fought for. We forgot that it took a struggle to even be able to wear pants, let alone a pantsuit. We are spoiled, my Gen X compatriots and my Millennial sisters. Our great conceit is that we take for granted the advances made by previous generations of American women."

New on +The Silent Mother, Please share.
"We are taught, from the time we are little, that we need to respect our elders, our parents and teachers. Yet, we are not often taught to respect ourselves. Our needs and desires are held to be of a secondary status to those considered to be of higher import. We are told to mind our business, be quiet and be good girls."

New on +The Silent Mother, "The Arrogance of Doctors and Episiotomy without Consent"

When history pisses you off and you are grateful that we have moved passed this stuff... mostly.

"DeLee’s writing firmly illustrates the “doctor as god” concept. This is the idea that the doctor knows best in all cases and should not be questioned. His entire paper reads as self-indulgent with an air of superiority. He speaks of how he can “save” mothers and babies with his techniques. His arrogance is profound.
