Carnival of Feminists XV
...is up at Self Portrait As. The posts on motherhood and reproductive rights were especially interesting to me this time - and a special nod to Cliopatria's "The War Against Mother's Day" post, as I love almost anything that cites The Way We Never Were: American Families and the Nostalgia Trap by Stephanie Coontz. For instance, imagine how different Caitlin Flanagan's (and Darla Shine's) ode to 1950's homemaking would be if they had read this book. And the posts on the Washington Post's story about the CDC and infant mortality and now consider yourself "Pre-Pregnant" are quite illuminating.
