In Mother Tongue Issue 2, rest gets radical (and we all want in), Kim Gordon says no to James Franco, writer Sarah Hoover goes hunting for her lost libido, poet Kate Baer texts her friends, The Vegan Hood Chefs serve food justice with coconut whipped cream, author Kimberly Harrington overshares (and cares), and we head to the strip club with photographer Bronwen Parker-Rhodes to find feminism on the main stage.
More from the issue: What happens when having kids isn’t part of the plan and you suddenly inherit three of them? Are massage guns the cure for all our (existential) woes? And did we find the secret to self-preservation in the Shizuoka province of Japan?
Mother Tongue is a biannual print magazine that interrogates (and celebrates) modern motherhood through inclusive stories about art, sex, pop culture, politics, food and a few things in between.
It’s not about kids or how to parent them: it’s about the nuanced lives we are living—as mothers, and much more.
The magazine is edited by co-founders Melissa Goldstein and Natalia Rachlin and designed by creative director Vanessa Saba.
