Call for Feminist Mothers

Continuing in the vein of eschewing misconceptions of feminism:

Mindy Erchull and Miriam Liss, two researchers at the University of Mary Washington, are looking for feminist mothers to participate in a study that they are conducting. Despite much internet discussion and many books written about the potential relationship between feminism and mothering, there is surprisingly little research about peopleโ€™s actual attitudes and beliefs about the relationship between feminism and motherhood. Given this, they are trying to collect data from feminists, non-feminists, mothers, and non-mothers to understand their beliefs so that we can clear up some of the potential misconceptions out there.
If you are a feminist and/or a mother and you would like to participate in this study, please click here. The study is anonymous, but you will need to provide an e-mail address in order to participate.

A long overdue and much anticipated piece of research that I shall be maintaining a beady eye on the look out for once published.
