Are the voices of mothers who identify with the liberation of mothers and the rights of their children.

There was a past emergence of Maternalism in feminist history in the nineteenth century, however it is not consistent to today’s issues that continue to undermine her rights and values.

We believe that the act of giving birth has been extremely undervalued in today’s society much as a result of patriarchy but also due to the lack of representation of mothers voices in women’s rights organizations.

We note that the eight hour day was inclusive of workers rights, but failed to acknowledge the labor of mothers towards raising future generations. In the last twenty years, our rights have declined further with this acknowledgement as our children have grown to become the property of the state and men.

We have the right to work from home, have flexible hours so that our care and work is balanced to eight hour days.

We demand that employers provide the technology and opportunities to do so. We have the exclusive right to be prioritized to be the exclusive candidates that have existing or possible opportunities to do so.

We believe that joint parenting and shared parenting that is forced under the state of law upon dissolution of marriage undermines our rights to:

  • Consent to the renamed marriage contract.
  • Continue our natural primary care giving relationship with our children.
  • Make decisions for the welfare of our children
  • Obtain protection of family
  • Freedom of movement
  • Love our children without scrutiny of the deep bond we place with our children
  • Raise our children
  • Be appreciated for the lives we bore onto this earth.

Whilst the status of women has improved, the status of mothers has declined that our representation in the media of mothers is poor and discriminatory.
We believe that both forced and persuasive adoption is a degradation of women equivalent to prostitution and laws against this abdominal crime need to be enforced.

We believe that threats to take our children for objecting to medical practices that are harmful is an exploitation of mothers and undermines her ability to intuitively know what is best to raise her children as she has done hundreds of years prior to the introduction of medical treatment.
