The War on Motherhood

Happy Mother's Day!

My wife Chelsea returns to talk with me about the cultural war on motherhood.

While avoiding "patriarchy" on one side and "radical feminism" on the other side, we answer some questions about the cultural war on Biblical motherhood:

  1. Is motherhood an obstacle holding back women’s freedom?
  2. Should women seek to “have it all”?
  3. Does equality mean politically managing the roles of father and mother?
  4. What effects does the war on motherhood have on children?
  5. What effects does the war on motherhood have on fathers?
