American mothers, for better or worse, live in a country with no Social Security benefits for their time at home, an ongoing non-equitable pay situation, and a lack of federally mandated parental leave, the formula crisis is just another tip of the iceberg (among many other things). For many this is a life and death situation that begins with birth and ends, in the case of many, with death. I am specifically noting the fact that the US has the highest maternal mortality rate of any developed nation. Tonight, Sunday May 22 @ 7-8:30PM (EST) we discuss these topics during a FREE film screening of Funnel of Dreams about the lack of supportive American Policies for moms and families. Join us! Motherhood is ONE FUCK of a journey!
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.
