Baby beats boardroom

Gianna is the best known of Australia's left wing feminist bloggers. She recently became a mother in the messiest of ways: a casual fling followed by a bitter internet and legal battle with the biological father. She's now living as a single mother in what I gather to be some trendy coastal hamlet.

The big news? She's had to rethink her feminism, because she loves being a mother! She wants to stay home, care for her son and would like to have done so with a man she loves.

I encourage you to read the whole thing. It's a case of a liberal woman unexpectedly confronting her natural maternal instincts and finding that the sense of connectedness as a mother is more important and more satisfying than the independent modern girl lifestyle she had previously led.
