As we come marching, marching, unnumbered women dead Go crying through our singing their ancient cry for bread. Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew. Yes, it is bread we fight for – but we fight for roses, too. - James Oppenheimer, “Bread & Roses”, 1911
“The institution [of Motherhood] has alienated women from our bodies by incarcerating us in them.” - Adrienne Rich, Of Woman Born, 1976
The Mill Project is funded in part by a grant from the Northampton Arts Council
