Qué importante es visibilizar las más duras realidades, aunque duelan. Esa es la única forma de empezar a sanar. Para eso sirve este libro, #Madres arrepentidas. Una mirada radical a la maternidad y sus falacias (Reservoir Books), de la israelí Orna Donath.
Yo la maternidad la gozo como una perra, aunque a veces se pierda la paciencia y los nervios. Pero me parece igualmente un aprendizaje brutal, ninguna escuela me ha enseñado tanto. Yo soy mejor persona gracias a mi hijo.
Aquí os dejo el artículo de Elvira Lindo.
Me voy a Italia a presentar el libro!

What a strange relationship we have with our boobies!
We judge them so harshly–they’re too big, too small, too saggy, the nipples are too big, the nipples are too small, the nipples are too dark, they’re different sizes, they have stretch marks, they used to be this, they used to be that.
The goal of this workshop is to realize how beautiful they are in all their different variations and to appreciate that our boobies are as diverse as we are. We are shamed about our boobies, our vaginas, our bodies, our periods, our skin, our hair–and while much of that stems from external influence (aka patriarchy/white supremacy/capitalism), we as women have unfortunately internalized it a great deal. I hope my work and workshops will be a catalyst for us reclaiming healthy relationships with ourselves and our bodies. We’ve done vaginas, now it’s time for the boobies!
Unlke the #VaginasonFleek workshop, this will not be recorded. You have to be live and willing to be seen to register. Anyone who identifies as a woman can participate, including those of you with implants (would love some dialogue around this and to debunk the shaming of fake boobs). I would also love at least one participant who has survived #breastcancer to add to the dialogue about what it feels like to loose a boob–might help us be better to the ones we’ve got.
The VIRTUAL ? workshop will include:
Drawing our boobs
Showing our boobs
Discussing our boobs
And I’d love to have someone who knows about #mammograms show us how to do them. Also someone who has knowledge on the health benefits of wearing or not wearing bras! I will be looking for folks to speak on these things but if you are an “expert” or know one-please let me know.
So tag/grab a friend, some colored pencils, some wine and your boobs- and let’s get free!
