MoM is pleased to announce our second quarterly exhibit at The Factory, featuring Mother: the Job by Alexia Nye Jackson. Building Human Capital, Building Human Beings is a multi-media exhibit that includes black and white photos of the jobs mothers perform, writings by mothers and children, and other integrated art forms. These combine to portray the day-to-day life of mothers and the economic systems in which carework is managed. On view at The Factory in St. Pete Nov 23- Jan 24.
Many of us have been shocked by recent world developments in the environment, social climate, and in economics. This week’s hurricane was a brutal reminder of just how devastating and close to home natural disasters can be.
Fortunately, MoM made it out of the storm relatively unscathed, but we still have many concerns for our Florida neighbors as well as those in dire situations across the globe.

Funnel of Dreams film screening & talkback online with MOM: May 22nd, 7-8:30PM EST with Bonnie Silvestri. The film reflects on the global pandemic, and how families need to think about the work/home life paradigm and how Americans might improve things for a better future. The film dives into the history of motherhood, the struggle for women’s rights, and the issues related to family leave in the lives of working parents. At a time when women’s rights are under siege, the United States is the only industrialized nation not providing paid family leave. A director’s discussion will follow the screening. Please join our online community to RSVP to the Zoom.
Our Bodies, Ourselves was written by The Boston Women’s Health Collective in 1970, with the goal of promoting women and girl’s health, reproductive rights, and sexuality. The knowledge presented was radical for its day, illuminating topics as varied as masturbation and abortion.
