If you follow my Instagram Story, you know that over the holiday break I got mom-shamed about being a working mom. To be exact, someone very close to our family told my 14-year old daughter that I had made some poor decisions as a mom in order to have my career. When my daughter told me what was said to her, my heart sank.
Not only did I trust this person as someone who believed in our family and what we stand for, but I couldn't believe they had the audacity to criticize me to my own daughter. It is a reminder to me that despite living in 2020, working moms face judgment, pay inequity, and sexism if they want a career.
