Holly Charles is the author of Velvet and playwright of In All Thy Getting: The Forgotten Story of Freedmen’s Town, a stage play celebrating the triumphant rise of an ex-slave settlement in Fourth Ward Houston.
In this episode we discuss:
- What is to being a woman and redefining motherhood?
- What does self-care include?
- How can men support women during this process?
I’m Still a Woman is an episodic performance made up of eight monologues from women of color confronting the topic of delayed motherhood, as well as the expectations, timelines and social constraints which often hinder the emotional welfare of women. The intimate account of each character sheds light on the increase of Black and Latina women in education and business, misconceptions concerning infertility, as well as statistics concerning dating and marriage culture in minority communities. Each woman embraces her journey to motherhood, whether by way of proactive health care, fertility assistance, adoption or other acts of faith, by first proclaiming the piece’s title, I’m Still a Woman.
