Priceless Roles of a Mother is a book every woman can relate to!
There is no role a woman can’t play, especially the role of a mother. Relating to this month women empowering women, Margaret V Aberdeen is launching her new book, Priceless Roles of a Mother - praising and celebrating womanhood and motherhood. More than ever before women are juggling motherhood and a career. They are breaking the old boundaries and are changing with the times, especially into exclusive male professions - achieving success that their grandmothers could only have dreamed of.
In the book, she embraces how Mother’s Day started, the roles women played during the wars, not excluding how generations ago a woman had no CHOICE! And with unforeseeable feminine strength, women from past centuries have changed and paved the way to increase multiple choices for the right to be who we are today. Not stopping there, it also brings to light the shocking of reality how we overlook the A-Z unpaid roles of women in society.
But, this book is not all about praising women and mothers. Despite all these massive changes and choices, it also reveals, the added pressure of balancing a household and workplace, especially as a single mother, and the effects it is having on children compared to generations ago.
Priceless Roles of a Mother is an inspirational memoir and handbook with voices of mothers from all walks of life, sharing their personal struggles and triumphs. It is an extension of a poem called ‘A Mother, (listing all the intuitive things a mother does) which Margaret wrote to fill the void felt from missing her first son. It also highlights the tragic loss of her second son, abuse and cancer.
Margaret says “I felt I needed to let the world know that today’s society expects mothers (and they expect it of themselves) ‘to do it all’, ‘to do it perfect’ and to be the ideal ‘Supermums’ with the majority of them being single Supermums!”
