This is a regular feature by Madison Magazine. Last month they have featured Kevin Rudd, Tim “Rosso” Ross and Latika Bourke talking social media.

These three prominent women met over a morning tea, to discuss the topic “Is motherhood overrated?” and talked about the pressures placed on modern mothers, how much identity and freedom a woman can expect to retain or lose when she becomes a mother, and what sort of effect parenting styles or decisions that mothers make, can have on children.
