    DESCRIPTION

    What does motherhood mean right now, as we all figure out, each in our own way, how to exist, maybe one day thrive, in this liminal space between what we used to know and whatever comes next?

    In this second issue, Mother Tongue explore stories, both quiet and loud, of women learning, lamenting, living—now. They talk to London-based photographer Bronwen Parker-Rhodes about stripping as a feminist act; meet the Vegan Hood Chefs who are serving up revolution from the back of a food truck; explore the idea of radical rest in our culture of obsessive productivity; think deeply about … hockey, and what it means to love problematic institutions; find out what’s on Kim Gordon’s mind these days. There’s also a confessional essay on the triggering effects of sex after childbearing—with unexpected cameos by Yoko Ono and Hootie and the Blowfish—and an invitation (from a calligraphy studio in rural Japan) to pursue personal passions, as a form of self-preservation. And for those who have ever wondered: Wait, is percussive therapy the answer to all of my problems? There’s a not-at-all-scientific investigation of massage guns too. And more.

    Mother Tongue is a biannual print magazine that interrogates (and celebrates) modern motherhood through diverse and inclusive stories about art, sex, pop culture, politics, food and a few things in between. It’s not about kids or how to parent them: it’s about the nuanced lives we are living—as mothers, and much more.
