I'm a struggling single mom of 4, desperately looking for encouragement and support. I truly believe the single working moms are the forgotten silent and suffering members of society. Yes, completely ignored by society including the women's movement! What a slap in the face that is!! When I was going through a horrid divorce I reached out to N.O.W. and they had absolutely nothing to offer as far as support. They added my name to their mailing list and all I got was political newsletters... thanks, but no thanks.
I do enjoy listening to podcasts and turned to this as a possible source of encouragement. The episode I heard was in relation to alimony and child support. It was stated in relation to alimony and child support that we need to suffer as good feminists for the cause of our future generations. SERIOUSLY?!?! The fact is that the family court system is a sexist corrupt system that exploits women and children. Period!! I am just so offended by the ignorance of this idea that I had to break my silence and speak for the overworked, stressed and oppressed single mothers. Sadly, they won't find encouragement here.
