I'm a feminist WOHM who supports all women's choices. I can't speak for other feminists, but I would hope anyone who identifies with feminist ideology today would fight for every woman's right to choose her own path. I think feminists support and applaud women like Jeanne-Erin for her decision, too.

I know I want all women's labor to be valued and respected. It strikes me as particularly anti-feminist (and frankly, pro capitalist) to devalue women's labor in the home in favor of paid labor outside the home.

I wouldn't be surprised if 1970s and 1980s feminists who were eager to break down the barriers preventing them from entering the paid workforce unintentionally insulted those women who chose to stay at home. I'm hopeful 2020s feminists aren't making those same mistakes.
