Now back to what this interview is all about. Natasha is a mom of two and author of the blog The Stay At Home Feminist. Are “feminist” and “stay-at-home mother” contradictory terms? No way! Natasha and I have a candid chat about the complicated feelings parents wrestle with when making decisions about whether or not to work outside the home, and we talk about what it takes to bring up politically-aware kids who hold feminist ideals.

Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Natasha.
