Something to Believe In: The Sisterhood of Motherhood

BlogHer Spotlight

As we continue to read through the many (and important, every last one of them) write-ups about BlogHer '12, I stumbled upon one that I really just had to share with our BlogHer Moms readers. If you missed the special keynote with Soledad O'Brien, Christy Turlington Burns and Malaak Compton-Rock, you missed a beautiful, inspiring little gem about how we, as mothers, are more alike than different. Amy at Using Our Words wrote -- so beautifully -- about the moment and how it shaped her conference experience.

She shares her "a-ha" moment:

Interview with ChristyYou see, when you go to one of these bloggy conferences, you’re supposed to arrive with a 15-second summary of what your blog is all about. Since there are about a gazillion parenting bloggers, I’ve always struggled with what sets me apart. (Besides the most sincere, supportive, insightful readers, that is.)

But on Saturday afternoon, Christy Turlington, who was speaking on a panel about her charity Every Mother Counts, used a phrase that lit a fire inside of me.

“The sisterhood of motherhood”

Yes. Yes! That, that is what I believe in.

If you're interested in more from that keynote, read our liveblog, but don't miss the rest of Amy's great post.
