Child less or Child free?
1 in 4 women in Australia are childless either by choice, medical reasons or by circumstance. Childless women are often marginalised, stigmatised and socially excluded. Our CEO Felicite Black recently sat down for an interview with Natasha Hart to discuss issues around being child less or child free? Felicite identified that still today society has conflated womanhood with motherhood.
