Is Motherhood Being Censored?

Read and watch this Today News article about how Instagram and Facebook have removed pictures of fourth trimester [post natal] women and their children. To me it’s a depressing reminder of how our attitudes and responses to real women and children are becoming completely skewed with the avalanche of images produced and carried around by the web. We need more images like the ones this photographer and her project are creating. More images of real women and children in family groups, intimate in a non-sexualized way. Refreshing, celebratory and a moving reminder of the role the bonds safe, happy, functioning families play on our group and individual well being.
