Sarah A. Birken and Jessica L. Borelli, “Coming Out as Academic Mothers

Provocation: How can we negotiate our roles as parents and academics?

“The bottom line is that there is no cookie-cutter solution to how to make academe work for mothers. We wish it were so straightforward, but progress must come through trial and error and a steadfast belief in our critical role in the academy. Let’s believe in ourselves enough to value our contributions, to believe that instead of detracting from them, motherhood enhances them. Through that belief, we will become more of the people our students imagine us to be.”
