CBC writer slams Mother's Day for focusing on 'women's contextual relationship to men'

Opinion writer Natasha Steer criticized the culture surrounding the special day saying, 'perhaps Mother's Day focuses more on husbands celebrating wives because motherhood has often been left out of feminist conversations.'

On yesterday's livestream, Sheila Gunn Reid was joined by Adam Soos as they discussed one CBC writer's questionable perspective on Mother's Day.

As writer Natasha Steer put it, "Though representations of Mother's Day have, thankfully, evolved over the years, nuanced and diverse representation remains especially low for single-lone mothers. When was the last time you saw a commercial boldly featuring a happy single mom and her son? I'm frustrated that mothers outside of heterosexual two-parent households often feel unseen and excluded from mainstream narratives. Perhaps Mother's Day focuses more on husbands celebrating wives because motherhood has often been left out of feminist conversations."
