Alright, so it’s a different “labor,” but we’ll take it, right?

Tell me what’s going on, and how you are celebrating your holiday weekend (assuming it is a holiday for you - it isn’t for us!).

Don’t forget that tonight is the live webcast of the 5th anniversary Bold reading! Check out the site to register for the live webcast tonight, or one of the many re-showings (or, hey, the in-person show if you can make it).

That photo is awesome. So wish I could see the play in person, I'll have to sign up for one of the webcasts. We did have the day off and had a fun family NYC day. I'm wiped. Grateful for what labor unions and activists have done for us over the years. I'll be 32w tomorrow and I'm sorta plotzing about it. How are you, T?

I didn't realize the cesarean epidemic was even more severe in China than in the USA:

"In a country where some 47,370 babies are born every day, 46.2 percent of expectant mothers in China choose to give birth with surgical help...

The Beijing Health Bureau has been promoting vaginal birth in order to lower the world’s No. 1 C-section rate. Stricter supervision will be exerted and hospitals will be punished if they are found to perform unnecessary C-sections, according to Mao Yu."

When I was a little girl I always assumed that Labor Day was to celebrate women who had given birth. I was probably ten or eleven before I learned that labor day came about for celebrating labor unions. I always thought laboring women had more of a claim on a holiday. How would Labor Day be different if we WERE celebrating women who had given birth? That would be a fantastic holiday!
