Many is the time that I've been on an important conference call while holding, feeding, and maybe even changing some small child all at the same time — and maybe using the computer too. I think that's a skill that mothers have whether they identify themselves as feminists or whether they don't.
From a personal point of view, when things are very challenging relating to my daughter, in particular, or when I've had a challenging day with both kids, the work is the fun part and the social activism is the fun part and it has so much meaning for me personally that I like to think I can share some of that meaning with my kids and that I can bring some of that meaning back to myself as a mother and can somehow input that into my mothering style. But it would be wrong for whoever might be listening to this in future years to think for a minute that it's very easy to combine all of these things with motherhood.
