HuffPost – GLOBAL MOTHERHOOD – “One Story, One World” – Monday 7 January, 2013
Imagine how the world would change if we saw every mother as a sister. If we extended to every mother the same empathy, care and concern for her health and happiness that extend to our own sisters. This morning, as I sit here filled with joy at the arrival of my sister’s new baby, a little girl named Winter, my heart opens up not just to her and to that new life–to the new lives being birthed by mothers all over the world, many of them struggling for health, empowerment, and even survival.
This powerful idea of a Global Sisterhood of Motherhood is coined by the maternal health advocate Christy Turlington Burns in a presentation curated for the International Museum of Women. Turlington Burns travels the world to bring us examples of brave and dynamic women who see strangers — mothers everywhere — as their sisters.
Through art and stories from the Museum’s global archives, Turlington Burns shows how motherhood binds us together, and how that shared sisterhood can be a force for changing the world. . .
