The second issue of Mother Tongue is a beautiful thing. A well-designed publication created to 'interrogate (and celebrate) modern motherhood through inclusive stories about art, sex, pop culture, politics, food and a few things in between', Mother Tongue differs (most obviously) from other magazines who explore motherhood by focusing in on the lives of mothers and the 'nuanced lives' they live.
On the Journal:
At work with Mother Tongue, ‘The pandemic was definitely our spark, because we both (had to) put work on pause to stay home with our kids when schools shut down in the spring of 2020. The load on mothers the world over just got so intense, and we felt like there were so few arenas to have candid, more nuanced conversations about the realities of motherhood today.’
