Happy International Women’s Day #IWD to all the #childless and #childfree women who feel unseen and uncelebrated in a #pronatalist society that equates womanhood with motherhood.
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
*
Happy International Women’s Day to all the unpartnered women who feel unseen and uncelebrated by a society mired by #singlism (thank you Bella DePaulo) and who, this day, as every day, navigate all of life’s tasks, big and small, without recognition or support.
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
*
Happy International Women’s Day to my LGBGQIA+ childless and childfree sisters, both single and partnered, creating their own definition of womanhood in our #homophobic society
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
*
Happy International Women’s Day to my black and brown childless and childfree sisters, who deal with the extra layers of othering of their experience in our #racist society.
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
*
Happy International Women’s Day to all the women crossing the threshold into elderhood without the social validation of grandparenthood in a soceity where #pronatalism #sexism and #ageism collide to make the experience of #AgeingWithoutChildren so challenging.
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
*
Happy International Women’s Day to all the mothers in our lives who do their best to ‘get it’ and who join us in the work of anti-pronatalism by recognising that #IWD isn’t ‘International Mother’s Day’!
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
*
Happy International Women’s Day to to all the writers, healers, podcasters, therapists, bloggers, activists and women in the #childless commuity, both the ones I know and the ones I hope to know.
*
I see you and I celebrate you.
