An Interview With Museum of Motherhood, MOM, Founder and Director, Joy Rose
On the Parenting for a Peaceful World USA Tour, Robin Grille stops by the Museum of Motherhood in New York City and talks with founder and director, Joy Rose, on the culturally un-examined history of motherhood and how the museum illuminates this blindspot. MOM is helping to shape a new story of motherhood: for example, how there are other people and projects requiring mothering in our world, and perhaps mothering children is only one avenue of mothering. Joy talks about the museum’s many historical and cultural venues for exploring motherhood and how the “world’s most important job” is kept in a cultural blindspot, but how Herstory could be changing with the Family Leave Act. The United States is one of only three countries not supporting families after the birth of a child.
