WOW "Young Mothers"
Friday, February 11, 2011
Over the past three decades, women have partnered up and/or become mothers later in life due to career aspirations, life plans, the desire for freedom, financial goals and an assortment of other reasons. However, not all women are following the trend of later and older. Women On Wednesday presents “Young Mothers on Mothering in their 20s” at noon Feb. 16 at the Atwood Theatre.
Mothers who are younger than 30 will talk about their reasons for becoming mothers and mothering in their 20s, their experiences as young mothers and their thoughts about the roles of mothering today.
Panelists Heidi Aldes, director of the LGBT Resource Center at St. Cloud State, and Alison Underland, St. Cloud State senior majoring in anthropology, will share their stories of raising children while balancing personal and professional life. Aldes earned a master’s of science in diversity leadership in student affairs from St. Cloud State.
The Women On Wednesday series is presented by the Women’s Center at St. Cloud State.
