Women should not be defined by motherhood

I don’t usually post links to articles from the Daily Mail, but this piece on an interview with Jennifer Aniston is worth reading.  If you’ve ever felt swamped by endless questions about when you are going to have children, imagine what it is like to have them splashed across the media with speculation about when and whether you might be pregnant.

In this interview for American TV, Jennifer Aniston says she has no idea why people are so obsessed by her marriage and motherhood prospects – and says she doesn’t feel any less fulfilled because she hasn’t had children. It’s an important message – we don’t define men by whether or not they are parents, so why does it seem to happen so often to women?
