Avital Norman Nathman is a former teacher and lifelong learner turned freelance writer. Her work, which places a feminist lens on a variety of topics, including motherhood, gender, reproductive justice, and reproductive health, has been featured in Bitch magazine, Bamboo Family Magazine, The New York Times, CNN, HLNtv.com, RH Reality Cheque, Offbeat Mama, and more. In addition to her blog, The Mamafesto, Avital has a regular series, "The Femisphere," for Ms. Magazine's site, as well as a regular feminist parenting column, "Mommie Dearest," for The Frisky.
While teaching high school social studies for a number of years, Avital completed her master's thesis at Wesleyan University, with a concentration in women's studies. Her thesis, which focused on the status of feminism in the lives of women in their twenties, only fueled her interest in investigating and commenting on the role of feminism for women in other aspects of their lives, including motherhood.
Based in Western Massachusetts with her husband and son, Avital enjoys digging in her urban garden, hosting dance parties in her kitchen, tweeting (follow her at @TheMamafesto), and searching for the perfect cup of Chai.
Christy Turlington Burns is a model, mother and founder of Every Mother Counts, a campaign to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.
"Refreshingly honest, frequently funny, and overall intelligently self-reflective, these voices reassure the anxious and guilt-ridden that 'there is no such thing as a good mother. There is only the good enough mother.'"Publishers Weekly"
