In her new book, Opting In, feminist activist and author Amy Richards explores feminist mothering. Laura Barcella talked to her in San Francisco about her newest "baby."

Before the internet made it easier to network with other alternative parents, before there was a genre of mama zines, or even Hip Mama, there was China Martens' "The Future Generation: The Zine for Subculture Parents, Kids, Friends & Others."
Amy reflects on her choice to have children, societal expectations and how feminism gets a bad rap when it comes to supporting procreation and motherhood.
For Mother's Day this year, Loren honors all our choices about our bodies and motherhood—including the choice not to be a mother.
