Deconstructing Motherhood & Divorce with Joy Rose
(Season 2 | Episode 70)
[Tessa] RECONNECTING WITH A FORMER COLLABORATOR AND FOUNDER OF THE MUSEUM OF MOTHERHOOD
Joy takes away the labels. And she owns her life and relationships. She is all about deconstructing our own judgements. Once we see something we can unlabel it. Does this sound familiar? A little bit? If you enjoyed our chat with Jonathan Pillot about his UNLABELME, then you will love our chat with Martha Joy Rose.
