Mum’s not the word Childless Childfree by photographer Denise Felkin

Monday, June 17th, 2019
A photobook about women without children
Sharing stories of birth control, choice, freedom, regret and pain, Mum’s not the word challenges the negative attitudes within society towards people without children.
Why is it that women are expected to provide reasons for not having children, and yet deciding to have them does not require justification? With up to 20% of the female population being childless, this book aims to celebrate these often ignored ‘sheroes’ as a recognised breed of women.

Mum’s not the word debates the social stigmatisation of women, who, by choice, circumstance, or whatever reason, go against the instinct for childbirth and maternal productivity.

The subjects, photographed by award-winning photographer Denise Felkin, come from all walks of life: professionals, artists, some with mental health issues, some have fragile relationships with their birth mothers, and some who identify as other than heterosexual.

AWAD’s Founder and CEO has written the Foreword and Last Word.
Book launch event: Saturday 22 June 2019 2-5pm 19 Mallord Street, Chelsea. SW3 6AP
