Happy Mother's Day?

What's a Mother's Worth?

By Riane Eisler, AlterNet. Posted May 11, 2007.

This Mother's Day let's give mothers what they really need: a more secure old age.

"The devaluation of women and the 'women's work' of caregiving is a pathology we must leave behind - not only for the sake of the female half of humanity but for us all. Indeed, only as we give real value and visibility to the work of caring and caregiving can we move forward to economic systems that truly care for the real wealth of nations: people and our natural environment."
