June 9, 2014A Real Feminist
Hello Dr. Laura,
I thought I threw feminism out the door when I became a stay-at-home mom. I grew up in a dysfunctional family. My parents started having children as teenagers and it was not a big deal to them when I got pregnant at 19. After meeting my husband and having two more children I wanted to do things the right way. I found a pastor and pastor's wife to instruct me in this area. I recently moved away from my pastor and his wonderful family when my husband got a job in another state. I miss them dearly. Two weeks ago, I found you through your podcast and after listen to the first episode I was hooked. I listen to you as I run, clean, cook, and run my errands. Through listening to you I found you are the true feminist. You don't put up with men or women who lie, cheat, and are abusive, yet you embrace your womanhood as a mom and a wife. You have become my new cheerleader. Thank you.
My kids' mom and my husband's girlfriend
P.S. I called recently to ask about going back to school and you said to take online classes so I can still be there for my kids. Beautiful.
